About Heather E. Merry

Dr. Heather E. Merry is a thoracic surgeon with Providence Thoracic Surgery in Portland, Oregon. She is board certified in cardio-thoracic surgery. Dr. Merry has a focus in thoracic oncology and shortness of breath. As a thoracic surgeon, she performs a diverse array of lung operations, including minimally-invasive resections for lung cancer, tracheal surgery, plication for a paralyzed diaphragm and surgery for lung and pleural infections.

In her practice, Dr. Merry has expertise using a proactive multi-disciplinary approach for patients with thoracic malignancies, infections and late-stage lung disease. She works closely with each patient's oncologist and pulmonologist to help provide an accurate diagnosis and to identify treatment options with the best potential to extend longevity and improve quality of life.

Dr. Merry's research focus is in the development of treatments for end-stage lung disease, understanding the factors that promote or prevent injury in transplanted lungs and exploring the cellular-level response to hypoxia and re-oxygenation. Dr. Merry has made several presentations on her research and has co-authored numerous articles on lung disease and thoracic surgery. She is a member of the Society of Thoracic Surgery as well as Women in Thoracic Surgery. Prior to joining the Providence Team, Dr. Merry practiced thoracic surgery in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
