At Moffitt Cancer Center, our Thoracic Oncology Program’s physician specialists have the expertise to diagnose and treat early-stage lung cancer, late-stage lung cancer, and other thoracic cancers. We provide patients and referring physicians with the most current treatment methods and support available today.
Our team approach to treating lung cancer includes specialists from several disciplines, including medical oncology, surgery, pulmonology, pathology, radiation therapy and radiology – all working together to ensure coordinated care, good communication and an aggressive approach to lung cancer treatment. Patients also receive support from our team of skilled nurses, psychosocial workers, dietitians and other healthcare professionals who have advanced education in caring for lung cancer patients.
Moffitt’s Thoracic Oncology Program provides the very best treatment options available for lung cancer patients, but we’re striving for more. That is why we are actively working on research and special treatments called clinical trials for many of our patients. We believe this is the most effective way for many patients to receive the best care possible, and for all of us to contribute to the prevention and cure of lung cancer in the future.
