The Thoracic Surgery section of Frontiers in Surgery invites manuscripts inclusive of all malignant and benign disease processes that encompass the chest, the chest wall, the lung, esophagus, and mediastinum. Due to the ever-increasing demand for resources and growing emphasis on value-based healthcare, the scope of the section also includes research focusing on developing, implementing and evaluating lean processes and fast-tracking protocols. Specific areas of interest for Specialty Chief Editor Dr. Robert Cerfolio include staging and treatment of non-small cell and small cell lung cancer, benign pulmonary processes, malignant processes of the esophagus and benign oesophageal swallowing disorders. His focus also includes outcomes research examining the use of minimally invasive platforms such as robotics and video thoracoscopy. This section welcomes clinical or basic science manuscripts in the field of Thoracic Surgery.
