Lung Cancer Services

For patients with suspected or diagnosed cancers of the lung and chest, Steward® Centers for Cancer Care provide comprehensive care from diagnosis through treatment to recovery. Our lung cancer experts often lead important clinical trials, giving our patients access to the very latest treatments.

Our multidisciplinary lung cancer team includes medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonary specialists, radiation oncologists, radiologists and pathologists who provide leading-edge diagnosis and treatment.  

This team works together in tailoring personalized treatment plans that may include:

  • Advanced diagnostic techniques and technology to evaluate patients’ conditions and to determine whether patients are candidates for surgery.
  • Advanced, state-of-the-art treatment options such as minimally invasive surgery and alternatives to lung removal that better preserve pulmonary function.
