Dr. Philip Catalano is Board Certified in Thoracic Surgery and has practiced in Augusta for over 30 years. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Chest Physicians.
Dr. Catalano specializes in surgical correction of diseases affecting the heart and lungs. He has a special interest in lung cancer and believes in using the most minimally invasive approach possible to remove all cancer during the first surgical procedure. That is why he is the only cardiothoracic surgeon in the region who uses the da Vinci® Surgical System for thoracic surgery. His patients have smaller scars and less pain, which leads to a faster recovery.
