Thoracic surgeon: You should chat with your pulmonologist about that - and a thoracic surgeon. It depends on how involved it is, and where the segment is. So, good luck with that.

Careful evaluation: You should have a thorough evaluation including consultation with a trained thoracic surgeon. Surgery can be very beneficial in carefully selected appropriate candidates: http://goo.Gl/17ne0 and http://goo.Gl/b97iu and http://goo.Gl/qb7fh.
