Surviving lung cancer

I was a patient of his when he was working in the LVHN in 2009. He did my surgery to implant a port then remove my left lung and eventually remove the port. I am still alive and doing well after lung cancer. Thanks to his treatment!

Excellent Surgeon

Dr Szwerc saved my life after I was diagnosed with esophagus cancer. He and the team at LVH rebuilt my esophagus and I recovered beautifully. This was all done at the age of 75.
