Lung Cancer Treatment Information for Residents of Orlando, FL
When it comes to beating lung cancer and achieving a positive quality of life, the experience of your physician can make all the difference. That’s why residents of Orlando, Florida, who have been diagnosed with lung cancer often choose Moffitt Cancer Center for their treatment. Located in nearby Tampa, the specialists within our Thoracic Oncology Program are highly experienced in treating rare and complex lung malignancies.
Moffitt patients benefit from the extensive experience of our lung cancer team, but that’s not the only reason why so many residents of Orlando, FL, and cities throughout the nation choose to travel to Moffitt for cancer treatment. Other reasons include:
In a single location, Moffitt patients can receive treatment from diagnostic specialists, medical oncologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists and supportive care professionals. This eliminates the need for our patients to travel to multiple centers to receive the therapies and procedures they may require.
Moffitt’s tumor board – a multispecialty team of experienced cancer specialists – collaborates to design individualized treatment plans based on the location, stage and molecular makeup of each patient’s lung cancer, along with the patient’s health care preferences.
Moffitt stands at the forefront of cancer research and clinical trials, which means our lung cancer patients have access to the latest breakthroughs in treatment before they are made widely available. Thanks to our commitment to forwarding cancer research, we have the great distinction of being the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida.
At Moffitt, we understand the challenges associated with traveling to receive lung cancer treatment. That’s why we have partnered with several reputable, nearby hotels to provide our out-of-town patients and their families with discounted rates. These hotels meet or exceed our stringent hygiene standards and are committed to helping our patients heal and rest in a comfortable and friendly setting.
