Deputy Chief, Thoracic Service
Prasad S. Adusumilli, MD

I am a thoracic surgeon with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers in the chest — lung cancer, esophageal cancer, mesothelioma, thymoma, mediastinal and chest wall tumors, and cancers metastatic to lung and pleura.

My clinical interests include systematic workup of lung nodules for early diagnosis of lung cancer, accurate staging of thoracic cancers by endoscopic methods such as endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), and video-assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS). I take pride in effective communication with patients, family members, and their primary care physicians by constant and direct access. I perform minimally invasive, robotic, and open surgical procedures with a focus on patient-oriented outcomes (cancer control, quality of life).
