Chest surgery at Mayo Clinic (also known as thoracic surgery) involves the organs of the chest, including the esophagus (tube between mouth and stomach), the trachea (airway) and the chest wall (rib cage and breastbone). Surgeons at Mayo Clinic campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota work closely with colleagues in gastroenterology, oncology, pulmonology, radiation oncology and other specialties to ensure that you receive comprehensive, innovative and supportive care.
