About Dr. Roy F. Williams

Biography

Roy Williams, M.D., has been practicing thoracic surgery in South Florida for more than 13 years. He is one of the nation’s leaders in Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) and a pioneer in using minimally invasive techniques in aggressive early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of lung cancer. Dr. Williams, who has performed more than 1,000 minimally invasive thoracic procedures, is one of the few surgeons in the U.S. with experience in the field. The procedure typically involves two to four small openings between the ribs, as opposed to six-to 10- inch incisions that are customary with traditional thoracic surgery. Patients experience less pain, fewer complications, shorter hospital stays and a faster recuperation. Dr. Williams completed both his general surgery and cardiothoracic surgical training at the State University of New York/Kings County Hospital program. This included an additional year of designated specialized thoracic surgical training. He is board certified in cardiothoracic surgery and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
