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.
What are my treatment options?
Our tumor board will design a treatment plan that meets your unique health needs.
- CT scans for current and former smokers
- Extensive diagnostic process
- Interventional Pulmonology

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.
