The Team

The Doctors of TSET

Our Thoracic Surgery team is comprised of four thoracic surgeons who work together to provide caring, timely, expert and comprehensive surgical care to our patients in the context of a designated Level I Thoracic Surgery Centre. Michael Garron Hospital was designated a Level I Thoracic Surgery Centre in 2009.

Although the team is based at Michael Garron Hospital  (MGH), we provide care to many GTA and Ontario communities through partnerships with community and academic hospitals such as North York General Hospital (NYGH), Royal Victoria Hospital (RVH, Barrie ON) and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (SHSC/ Odette Cancer Centre). Our surgeons are members of the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto.

The Chest Centre was inaugurated in June of 2015. Although MGH was designated a Level I Thoracic Surgery Centre in 2009, the Centre allows for the further integration and consolidation of care and expertise in one space. This facilitates the journey for our patients. Our friendly and patient centered staff is ready to help patients navigate what can sometimes be a difficult and trying process.

Visit Our Education Portal to Learn More

Complexities of health care require that patients participate knowledgeably and actively in their health care to realize its full benefit. This includes reading, understanding and acting on health information while working together with expert surgeons to select the most appropriate treatment options. In the spirit of this collaboration between patient and surgeon, this portal hopes to act as a resource for our patients to learn about their illness, and treatment in addition to links to community resources that may aid the patient and their family in their journey.
