Lung Cancer: Multi-Disciplinary Program

The Departments of Thoracic Medical Oncology, Thoracic Surgery, Pulmonary Medicine, and Radiation Oncology have teamed up to offer a multidisciplinary clinic comprised of specialty-trained physicians. Our primary focus is to treat patients with all types of lung disorders. Conditions treated include:

  • Lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Thoracic malignancies (such as thymic tumors and mediastinal masses)
  • Patients with potential lung cancer indications such as nodules, masses, and effusions
