Dr. Cherie Erkmen is a cardiothoracic surgeon at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center, located in the town of Lebanon in western New Hampshire. Her specialties include cancers affecting the lungs and chest, such as mesothelioma.

Educational Background

Dr. Erkmen received her bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley and attended medical school at the UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles. She completed a residency in general surgery and a fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery at Boston’s Brigham & Women’s Hospital. Dr. Erkmen is board certified in thoracic and cardiac surgery, with her most recent certification valid as of 2011.

Professional Highlights

Dr. Erkmen has been a part of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center since 2008 and is active in several departments there: the Gastrointestinal & Pancreatic Cancer Program, Lung/Thoracic Cancer Program, and Surgical Oncology. She has experience with the surgical treatment of lung cancer, chest wall tumors, gastrointestinal and pancreatic cancers, and other lung and pleural diseases.

Also among Dr. Erkmen’s areas of expertise is minimally invasive thoracic surgery, a technique in which surgeons make just a few small incisions and perform operations with the assistance of tiny cameras inserted into the body. This practice drastically reduces the risk and recovery time of the surgery, compared to open chest surgery.

Dr. Erkmen is bilingual, speaking English and Spanish.
