Lung cancer surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. When it comes to surgical outcomes, experience matters, and Moffitt’s surgical oncologists have performed thousands of thoracic operations. In fact, Moffitt has a designated team of surgeons who exclusively treat lung cancer, mesothelioma and Pancoast tumors, giving them an unparalleled level of expertise when it comes to lung surgery.
At Moffitt, we adapt our surgical approach to the needs of each patient. We perform several different procedures, including:
- Segmentectomy (wedge resection)
- Sleeve resection
- Extrapleural pneumonectomy
Using today’s latest techniques for precise tumor removal, we strive to improve both surgical outcomes and quality of life for each patient we treat. For this reason, many patients travel to Tampa to undergo minimally invasive and robotic lung cancer surgery in the hands of our experienced team.
At Moffitt, we not only offer individualized surgical therapies for cancers of the lung and chest, but also chemotherapy, radiation therapy and a comprehensive supportive care program to assist patients with postoperative recovery. We want our patients to focus on what matters – getting better – which is why we make it possible to access a full spectrum of services under one roof.
