In 2014, Dr. David J. Sugarbaker, a master thoracic surgeon and internationally recognized thought leader, was recruited to join the faculty at Baylor College of Medicine as founding chief of the Division of General Thoracic Surgery and founder director of the Baylor College of Medicine Lung Institute. Dr. Sugarbaker established new surgical approaches for the management of mesothelioma and fostered innovative surgical approaches to benign and malignant thoracic disease, which continues in the Division today.

The David J. Sugarbaker, M.D. Division of Thoracic Surgery Endowed Fund has been created to support the training of future thoracic surgeons to carry on his legacy.
