Thoracic Oncology Program: Lung

Thoracic Oncology Clinical Services

Lung cancer is a complicated disease that requires many combined modalities for treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy, biotherapy, radiation oncology and interventional radiology. Within the past five years many new treatment options have been discovered and researched that provide better outcomes and survival benefits for lung cancer patients. The Thoracic Oncology Program utilizes NCCN guidelines when planning treatment.

To remain on the leading edge of treatment, the Thoracic Oncology Program holds weekly conferences attended by 45 medical professionals.

The Thoracic Oncology Program at St Joseph Hospital has been on a continuous journey to advance and broaden our molecular testing processes for our lung cancer patients. The program stays up to date with the most recent and available guidelines for biomarker testing. Our program utilizes the latest techniques in tissue acquisition and through our multidisciplinary team, makes the best recommendations for treatment.
