Thoracic Oncology Specialists
At Moffitt Cancer Center, our Thoracic Oncology Program includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists and pulmonologists who take a collaborative approach to treating all types of lung and chest malignancies. Led by Scott Antonia, MD, PhD, this multispecialty team ensures each patient receives a treatment plan that is tailored to his or her unique needs. By taking this individualized approach to cancer treatment, our thoracic oncology specialists are able to provide our patients with the best chance of achieving a positive outcome and improved quality of life.
Because Moffitt is a high-volume cancer center, our thoracic oncology specialists have a unique level of experience in treating even the most uncommon and complex malignancies. Our patients benefit directly from this expertise, which can make all the difference in a patient’s prognosis. At Moffitt, we offer a comprehensive range of services that includes:
- Diagnostic and staging tests
- Lung cancer screening services
- Molecular tumor profiling
- Radiation therapy
- Robotic-assisted surgery
- Supportive care services
In a single, convenient location, Moffitt’s patients can receive all of the treatment and supportive care services they require as they undergo cancer treatment. Additionally, Moffitt runs a robust clinical trials program, giving our patients opportunities to receive advanced treatments that have not yet been made available elsewhere. Our commitment to advancing cancer research has earned us the designation of Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, and we are the only such cancer center based in Florida.
If you have a patient with lung cancer, a Pancoast tumor, mesothelioma or another thoracic malignancy, you can easily refer them to Moffitt by completing our online form or contact a physician liaison for assistance or support. Moffitt is committed to providing short response times and responds to most referrals on the same business day they are received.
