Lung and Thoracic Oncology
The UC Health thoracic cancer team—made up of pulmonologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, respiratory therapists, experienced oncology nurses and fellowship-trained surgeons—specializes in treating the entire range of cancers affecting the chest cavity.
Our radiation oncology team uses the advanced technology possible in treating lung and thoracic cancers. This includes 2D and 3D radiation therapy and brachytherapy for early stage lung cancers.
Patients with lung cancer or other cancers of the thoracic region are presented in a multi-disciplinary thoracic conference with surgical and medical oncology, pathology, diagnostic radiology, and pulmonary input, in addition to radiation oncology experts.
Multidisciplinary treatment plans are developed for a variety of tumors including non small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer, carcinoid, thymoma, mediastinal tumors and esophageal cancer.
Like all UC Health physicians, our lung cancer specialists also serve as faculty members at the UC College of Medicine, giving them access to the latest scientifically validated medical information to help patients live healthier lives. They also serve as educators for the next generation of physicians in training and provide continuing education opportunities for community physicians.
