Lung and Thoracic Cancer

Breathe easier with lifesaving therapies and advanced treatments

Our thoracic cancer team cares for nearly 650 patients each year, treating their cancer and improving their breathing. We specialize in minimally invasive techniques, such as bronchoscopy and robot-assisted surgery to help us precisely and quickly diagnose your condition.

Thoracic cancer is any cancer of the chest region, such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, or thymoma.

What are my treatment options?

Our tumor board will design a treatment plan that meets your unique health needs.

Along with common cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation, your plan also may include:

We also participate in clinical trials to help us understand more about the best ways to treat thoracic cancer. These trials give you access to promising new treatments before they are available to the general public.

Cancer doesn’t just affect you physically. It also can take a toll on you emotionally. We will connect you to support groups so you can talk with others who understand what you’re going through. We also offer a Survivorship Workshop Series to help you cope with cancer diagnosis and treatment.
