Francisco Tarrazzi, MD & Mark Block, MD

Our nationally recognized, board-certified thoracic surgeons are experts in the field of thoracic medicine and practice general thoracic surgery. That means they specialize only in diseases of the lung, esophagus and mediastinum, including lung and other thoracic cancers, allowing them to provide the highest level of individualized care to patients with these diseases.

This approach also creates a stronger working relationship with colleagues in other specialties, including radiation therapy and medical oncology, allowing patients to receive some of the best multidisciplinary treatment around.
