Lung cancer treatment is one of our many specialties at Moffitt Cancer Center, a world-renowned provider of treatment and supportive care to patients with lung cancer and other types of malignant diseases. Many people from Miami, Florida, and throughout the country choose to travel to our state-of-the-art center in Tampa for lung cancer treatment thanks in part to the innovative therapies available in our Thoracic Oncology Program. Working hand in hand, our lung cancer specialists leverage the latest advances in treatment to achieve more positive results and a better quality of life for our patients.
What physicians treat lung cancer?
Lung cancer is among the most common malignancies and may take one of several forms. In general, it is classified as either non-small cell (the most prevalent type) or small cell. Moffitt provides well-rounded treatment for all types of lung cancer from a multispecialty team that focuses exclusively on lung malignancies. For example, as a Moffitt patient, your lung cancer treatment team will include:
- Thoracic surgeons
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Supportive care specialists
Moffitt provides a full spectrum of advanced treatments for lung cancer, including robotic-assisted surgery, novel combination chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy and radiofrequency ablation. However, we won’t be satisfied until there is a cure for every patient. That’s why we spearhead several groundbreaking research initiatives and clinical trials. Patients who are eligible to participate in a clinical trial have access to the latest breakthroughs in treatment before they are made widely available.
If you or a loved one is traveling from Miami to receive lung cancer treatment at Moffitt, we invite you to take advantage of reduced rates at one of our partner hotels. These hotels are located near our cancer center and comply with our rigorous hygiene standards.
