About Dr. Tishko
As a surgeon certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery and specializing in lung cancer surgery, my staff and I believe in offering our patients the highest quality care in a professional, educated and inviting atmosphere. We know that any surgery is important, and that thoracic surgery is an extremely critical consideration. We know that you may have many serious questions and concerns.
Dr. Tishko believes the more you know about your care and how to think about it, the better you will do.
Using surgical techniques that he invented and perfected, including Single Incision Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (SiVATS), as well as all other options, Dr Tishko’s goal is to provide excellent cancer care and reduce your recovery time and discomfort after your surgery. We also wish to make the doctor patient relationship strong, and we strive to encourage patients to take an educated and active role in their own care.
We look forward to working together with you and your family as your surgical care moves forward.
What is Single Incision SiVATs?
Dr. Tishko has developed a unique, minimally invasive lung surgery procedure called Single Incision Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery ( SI VATS ) to reduce recovery time for patients – especially those with particularly complex conditions. Our procedure cuts hospital stays by 50% or more, patients experience less discomfort for a shorter period of time, and their families can expect a quicker return home.
