Natalie Lui, MD
Assistant Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery (Thoracic Surgery) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Bio Dr. Lui studied physics as an undergraduate at Harvard before attending medical school at Johns Hopkins. She completed a general surgery residency at the University of California San Francisco, which included two years of research in the UCSF Thoracic Oncology Laboratory and completion of a Master in Advanced Studies in clinical research. Dr. Lui went on to hold a fellowship in Thoracic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, during which she participated in visiting rotations at Memorial Sloan Kettering and the Mayo Clinic.
Dr. Lui specializes in minimally invasive thoracic surgery, including robotic thoracic surgery. Her clinical focus extends to all aspects of general thoracic surgical diseases, including lung and esophageal cancer and airway diseases such as tracheomalacia. Her research focus is clinical and translational, including intraoperative fluorescence imaging. She is happy to be back in California and enjoys the warm weather, good food, and beautiful outdoors.
Joseph Shrager, MD
Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests In clinical research, Dr. Shrager has been an innovator studying outcomes in a variety of areas within Thoracic Surgery including: parenchyma-sparing operations and minimally invasive resections for lung cancer, transcervical thymectomy for myasthenia gravis, and surgical treatment of emphysema.
In the lab, Dr. Shrager is focused on the impact of disease states upon the diaphragm. His group published the seminal paper (NEJM) describing diaphragm atrophy assoc'd with mechanical ventilation.
