About Dr. Krupnick

Dr. Krupnick is a general thoracic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of lung cancer, esophageal cancer, lung transplantation as well as benign thoracic disorders. He has dedicated his career to both advancing the field of lung transplantation and the care of patients with thoracic malignancies. His lung transplantation training and experience under Joel Cooper and Alec Patterson, credited with the first successful human lung transplant, put him at the forefront of the field.

He has performed hundreds of lung transplants and was thus recruited in 2020 as the surgical director of the University of Maryland lung transplant program. In addition, he has advanced the field of minimally invasive oncologic surgery and is an expert at minimally invasive pulmonary and esophageal resections.
