Dr. Liberman is a minimally invasive thoracic surgeon interested in interventional thoracic endoscopy, thoracic oncology and airway surgery. He is the Director of the CHUM Endoscopic Tracheobronchial and Oesophageal Center (C.E.T.O.C.) and was appointed to be the inaugural Medical Director of the Multidisciplinary CHUM Robotic, Endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery Program. He runs one of the busiest thoracic clinical trials programs in the country.
