For Health Care Professionals

Thoracic Surgery provides consultation, education and support to other Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) physicians and referring providers throughout the region.

  • Our "Update Series" of videoconferences describes the latest research and surgical options in the management and treatment of thoracic conditions. Topics include lung cancer screening, the treatment of early stage cancers, and surgical options for palliation of advanced cancers.
  • In a pilot for the new D-H eConsults program, we provide specialized advice and consultation by videoconference and email to D-H primary care clinicians.
  • Working with the D-H Center for Telehealth, we are developing a telehealth thoracic surgical consult clinic at Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Manchester, with plans to expand to additional locations in St. Johnsbury and Keene.
  • Together with Cardiac Surgery we are creating a D-H network to ensure best use of region-wide cardiothoracic surgical resources such as surgical staff, clinical space and operating rooms.
