Get to Know Dr. Ian Bostock
Thoracic surgeon Dr. Ian Bostock joined the specialists at Medical University of South Carolina Department of Surgery in 2021 with a vision for his practice.
“My patient care philosophy is centered on one thing – shared decision making,” Bostock said. “This process allows for each patient to be viewed as an individual and optimizes the creation of a treatment plan that is tailored to meet the needs of each person. I believe medicine should be practiced with compassion, truthfulness and a commitment to excellence.”
Bostock’s training included stints at MD Anderson Cancer Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, two of the most heralded facilities in the world for treating mesothelioma, a rare cancer with no definitive cure.
Bostock also treats end-stage lung disease as part of the multidisciplinary lung transplant team.
