Interviews with Thoracic Surgeons

The New Masters

Most of us never had the opportunity to meet or talk to some of the ‘masters’ of thoracic surgery like Dr. Hermes Grillo (1923 -2006), the ‘Father of Tracheal Surgery’ or Dr. Joel Cooper, the “Father of Lung Transplant” or legends in esophageal surgery such as Dr. Griffith Pearson or Dr. Henry Heimlich.

However, as we have discussed before, thoracic surgery is not static.  New technologies and new techniques are emerging all the time, and with these developments – new masters of thoracic surgery.  These include innovative and dynamic young surgeons such as Dr. Diego Gonzalez, and Dr. Mark Dylewski.  We hope to bring you more New Masters here at Cirugia de Torax.
