Can a thoracic surgeon do a biopsy?

Yes, a thoracic surgeon can perform a biopsy. Biopsy is a procedure where a small sample of tissue is taken from the body for examination and diagnosis of any abnormalities. While thoracic surgeons primarily focus on surgical treatment of diseases and conditions related to the chest, including the lungs, esophagus, and other thoracic organs, they are also trained in performing biopsies as part of their expertise in diagnosing and treating thoracic diseases.
