Lung Cancer

Our Lung Cancer Program

  • Lung cancer is the second most common cancer we diagnose.
  • Two national clinical trials for treatment based on genetic testing.
  • New, less-invasive TrueBeam™ radiation technology to treat lesions.

About 1 in 14 people in the United States has been diagnosed with lung cancer.

Treating Lung Cancer

Your lung cancer treatment will depend on the type and stage of your disease. Your doctor will discuss options with you and decide what's best for your individual diagnosis.

Other Possible Treatments

Nurse Navigators

A nurse navigator will work with you through the whole treatment process. She'll help you understand your diagnosis, take care of scheduling, and coordinate with doctors to get you the answers and help you need.

Supportive Care

Our care is comprehensive, with support for your personal challenges that goes beyond the disease itself.

Just a few ways we help:

New Treatments

We’ve been on the cutting edge of treatment for 20 years, and work to bring in new techniques for our patients.

Less-Invasive Radiation
With our new TrueBeam™ technology, we can treat lung lesions with fewer risks to patients, and a shorter recovery time.

Research Trials

We offer qualifying patients access to the latest clinical trials.
