Adult and Pediatric Thoracic Surgery

After attending medical school, Dr. Carter went on to train in general, thoracic, and cardiothoracic transplant surgery. She is certified by the American Boards of Surgery and Thoracic Surgery. During her 12 years in practice, she has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications and been involved in award winning research in thoracic surgery. She recently moved to Tucson to join Saguaro Surgical. Committed to a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, she strives to bring a modern approach to thoracic surgery aimed at developing an individualized treatment plan for every patient. “A variety of technological advances in the specialty over the past decade have drastically improved patient outcomes,” says Dr. Carter. “Utilizing minimally invasive thoracic surgery techniques has decreased postoperative pain, hastened recovery times, and less scarring.” Fun fact about Dr. Carter: She gave up training for the Olympics to pursue medicine. Her hobbies include distance running, triathlons, snowboarding, and skateboarding.
