You receive care from a program that excels in lung cancer care, including diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Patients also come to us to treat noncancerous growths, including lung nodules. We deliver trusted care, including options that are not widely available. Patients often stay with us years after treatment because we understand their medical history and health goals. Highlights of our program include:
We have led groundbreaking research that’s advancing lung cancer care. We were the first program in the world to implant radiation (brachytherapy) seeds in lung tissue with robotic surgical technology. And we are national leaders in using GPS-guided technology to enhance surgical procedures. Read more about cancer clinical trials and research.
We are among the nation’s top lung cancer surgery programs for lobectomy. Patients typically leave the hospital within a few days and complication rates are extremely low.
Advanced airway treatments:
If you are not able to have lung cancer surgery, we offer options to eligible patients. Procedures, including cryotherapy and stenting, that open blocked airways are available. Care may also include treatments to decrease the size of tumors, which can relieve certain symptoms. Explore advanced airway disease.
Survivorship services maximize wellbeing and help ease recovery after you complete lung cancer treatment. We check for signs of new cancer and deliver preventive services to help you avoid common illnesses, such as pneumonia.
