- Lung Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery, Thoracic Surgery, Thymoma and Thymic Malignancies
- Accepting Patients:
"Even the simplest of chest surgeries is complex. Being at OHSU means I get to work with a group of experts in
my field and offer the most advanced treatments available and still have time to sit and chat with patients and families and hear about how they’re doing."
Dr. Schipper does all types of general thoracic (chest and lung) surgery. He has a particular interest in lung and esophageal cancer, emphysema surgery and minimally invasive thoracic surgical techniques. He came to OHSU in 2004 to work with innovative surgeons and researchers as well as to teach residents his specialty. In his spare time, Dr. Schipper enjoys exploring the outdoors with his wife and two children on snow skis, mountain bikes, road bikes or on foot while hiking. He is also active with his son's Boy Scout troop, is himself an Eagle Scout and enjoys singing in the church choir.
