Kingman, AZ 86409-3593
As a board-certified Thoracic Surgeon, Dr. Braze is skilled in the surgical treatment of the lungs, esophagus, trachea, chest wall, and diaphragm. He is also an expert in newer, minimally-invasive surgical procedures for treating structures in the chest without major surgery. When appropriate, these procedures can minimize patient discomfort and reduce recovery time.
With his extensive training and experience, Dr. Braze is dedicated to the prevention, early diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the chest; with a major focus on lung and esophageal cancers. He teams with local pulmonologists, radiologists, oncologists, and other healthcare experts to provide multi-disciplinary care to patients with esophageal or lung cancer. For many of these patients, he acts as an advocate on their behalf and helps manage their case throughout the continuum of cancer care to survivorship.
Dr. Braze is passionate about the early detection of lung cancer, stating, "With modern imaging technologies and surgical procedures we can now detect and treat lung cancer at earlier, more survivable stages." Medical School: Touro University - Mare Island, California
