Get to Know Dr. John A. Federico

After two decades at the Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. John Federico joined Kalispell Regional Healthcare Surgical Specialists in 2017, bringing a wealth of expertise to the practice.

In addition to the aggressive, life-changing operations he has performed for many years, Federico also has experience in the minimally invasive management of thoracic malignancies.

He has expertise with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, which has changed the traditional approach to surgery for the treatment of malignancies such as pleural mesothelioma.

At Kalispell Regional Medical Center, Federico has taken the lead in utilization of the novel Veran SPIN System, an advanced version of bronchoscopy. It allows specialists to better investigate early lung abnormalities.

Federico became an authority on the early detection of lung cancer during his years at Yale, where he served as director of the Thoracic Oncology Program at the Hospital of Saint Raphael.

Although the town of Kalispell has an estimated population of just 24,000, its Regional Healthcare System offers a spectrum of services that rival those in much larger metropolitan areas.
