My research is primarily related to outcomes of the patients I treat. I am especially focused on thymic tumors (both thymomas and thymic cancers) and participate in an international thymic tumor interest group (ITMIG). I have led the Society of Thoracic Surgeons General Thoracic Database for many years and have published extensively on outcomes based upon this robust national database and developed risk-models to predict and compare results. I also have a long-standing interest in surgery of the airway (tracheal stenosis, tracheal tumors and idiopathic laryngotracheal stenosis) and have published on early and late results.
