The Tobacco Treatment Service (TTS) is the clinical arm of the Tobacco Research and Treatment Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. We provide inpatient consultation to patients hospitalized at Mass General. Dr. Rigotti and her team also conduct educational programs for health care providers.
Tobacco Research and Treatment Center
The Tobacco Research and Treatment Center (TRTC), based in the Mass General Department of Medicine and Division of General Internal Medicine, aims to reduce the health consequences of tobacco use by offering state-of-the-art clinical treatment to smokers and by conducting research to identify better ways to prevent and treat tobacco use in youth and adults. The TRTC was established in 1992 by Nancy Rigotti, MD, to identify and disseminate innovative tobacco treatment strategies for the health care setting and to mentor new investigators in tobacco treatment and policy research. The TRTC consists of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, behavioral scientists, nurses, social workers and research staff.
