Taine T.V. Pechet, MD, Vice Chief of Surgery at Pennsylvania Hospital, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in thoracic surgery.
Since 2004, Dr. Pechet has excelled as a thoracic surgeon, educator and the chief of surgery at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and Pennsylvania Hospital. Specializing in minimally-invasive procedures, palliative care, video-assisted surgery and the treatment of lung cancers and masses, he has been consistently named as one of America’s Top Doctors five times in a row and recognized as one of Philadelphia Magazine’s Top Doctors each year since 2011. Dr. Pechet is dedicated to developing a broader range of treatment options for his patients and helping to encourage developments in non-narcotic pain management. Looking toward the future, he hopes to continue to revolutionize thoracic surgery.
Dr. Pechet’s interest in medicine was encouraged by his father, an endocrinologist and biochemist, and he regarded the field as a longstanding mainstay throughout his life. He was awarded with a Doctor of Medicine in 1992 from Harvard University, is licensed in three states, and has been a diplomate of both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery since 2002. After a surgical residency at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, he was elected to a fellowship at Washington University Medical Center. From 2001 until 2004, he served as a provider at Jefferson Hospital, from which he departed to accept his current position with Penn Medicine. In recognition of his contributions to the discipline, Dr. Pechet is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Pennsylvania Medical Society and the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation, among many other professional societies.
Though Dr. Pechet is widely celebrated as a physician and educator, he considers his two sons and his wife, Jennifer, a philanthropist and retired teacher, to be his greatest pride.
