In addition to the expertise of our physicians, there are several reasons why people from West Palm Beach, FL, and around the country choose to travel to Moffitt for lung cancer treatment. Here are just a few:
- Moffitt’s tumor board collaborates to develop individualized treatment plans and refines them as necessary according to each patient’s progress and specific needs.
- Moffitt provides a full spectrum of treatments for Pancoast tumors, from surgery to chemotherapy and radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells and minimize the risk of reoccurrence.
