As one of the largest and most clinically active lung cancer clinics in the southeast, we offer the latest in research and technology to diagnose and treat cancers of the lung and chest cavity. As managing lung cancer becomes increasingly complex, we often need to use combinations of treatment including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy for success. Our lung cancer experts works together to ensure each patient receives an individualized treatment plan for these conditions:
- Indeterminate lung nodules
- Malignant mesothelioma
- Non-small cell lung cancer
- Small-cell lung cancer
- Thymoma and thymic carcinoma
Our lung cancer surgery services received the highest possible rating from U.S. News & World Report, which recognizes our lung cancer care as among the best in the nation.
Our multidisciplinary team of surgical and radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, thoracic nurses and more, who are researchers and experts in their respective fields, offers a unique level of care. We offer treatment options unavailable at other cancer centers in this region.
By integrating research and clinical services, we're quickly translating our discoveries into effective treatments.
Saving Lives with Radiotracer
Our team pioneered a specialized technique called radiotracer localization to help locate and remove small or indeterminate lung nodules. During this procedure, we remove the entire nodule. If it is cancerous or has the potential to become malignant, radiotracer localization is a life-saving procedure.
