Dr. Daniel Miller is a world-renowned leader in thoracic surgery who provides expanded access to thoracic surgery at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Atlanta. He has been inspired by the patient-centered approach to care at CTCA. “The compassion and dedication of the CTCA staff to the individual needs of the patient is second to none,” says Dr. Miller.
At CTCA, Dr. Miller provides thoracic surgery care to patients with thoracic malignancies ranging from the earliest to the latest stages of the disease. He helped introduce minimally invasive techniques for thoracic diseases, as well as new technology and interventions such as Hyperthermic Pleural Lavage for primary and metastatic pleural disease, making CTCA one of very few cancer centers to offer this treatment option.
Dr. Miller specializes in VATS procedures for early-stage disease and is an expert in the complex surgical procedures involved in the treatment of advanced cancers of the trachea, lung, esophagus, mediastinum, bony skeleton and pleural.
