Lambros Zellos

MD MPH American Board of Thoracic Surgery Certified
American Board of Thoracic Surgery Certified

Dr Zellos is a thoracic surgeon trained at Harvard. He practiced thoracic surgery for a number of years at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital (the busiest thoracic surgery division of the Harvard Medical School with over 2800 thoracic procedures annually) at the rank of Instructor in Surgery. Dr Zellos performed lung and esophageal resection, as well as lung transplants. He was named one of Boston’s 2007 top thoracic surgeons as voted by his peers. He treats thoracic malignant and benign disease, and specializes in the use of minimally invasive techniques that avoid painful rib spreading, also known as VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery).

Advanced minimally invasive techniques are not the only important parameter. The appropriate incorporation of other types of treatment is vital. Selecting the optimal treatment protocol is a decision that ideally involves the patient, the family and the medical team (the surgeon, with input from different specialties such as pulmonology, medical oncology, radiation oncology etc.). The patient’s wishes and functional capacity also play essential roles in the treatment plan.
