Diseases of the Trachea and Airway
Diseases of the trachea and airways are uncommon and diverse. We have a special interest in these conditions, including tracheal stenosis, tracheal and airway tumors, tracheoesophageal fistula, and tracheomalacia.
Two of our surgeons (Drs. Natalie Lui and Joseph Shrager) trained at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the world leader in management of these difficult problems. We work closely with the Division of Interventional Pulmonology and the Department of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery to offer the full spectrum of treatments, from bronchoscopic procedures such as ablation and stent placement, to surgical procedures such as tracheal resection and reconstruction and tracheoplasty.
If you would like to make an appointment to see one of our surgeons for any of these problems, please call (650) 498-6000 and ask for the Thoracic Surgery new patient coordinator, or call (650) 721-2086.
The Division of Thoracic Surgery in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Stanford School of Medicine is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in northern California.
