Thoracic Surgery Expert Witnesses

Thoracic surgery expert witnesses may opine on pulmonology, chest medicine, respiratory medicine, and more. The American Association for Thoracic Surgery has adopted a statement of qualifications for expert witnesses and guidelines for behavior of AATS members when acting as experts in the legal system including:

Making false, misleading, or deceptive statements exposes physician expert witnesses to risks of criminal prosecution for perjury, civil suits for negligence, and revocation or suspension of their professional licenses. Violation of these guidelines may lead to disciplinary action by the AATS. (See Article IX of the AATS By-laws.)
