Get to Know Dr. Daniel L. Miller

Thoracic surgeon Dr. Daniel Miller plays a prominent role in the patient-centered approach to care at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.

Miller helped introduce the minimally invasive techniques being used today for complex malignancies and new interventions with metastatic pleural diseases.

In addition to his duties at the Cancer Centers of America in Atlanta, he also serves as professor of surgery at nearby Georgia Regents University and director of clinical research for the WellStar Health System.
