Learn About Our Expertise

You’ll Receive Advanced Care

Our physicians are known for coordinating and tailoring the ever-expanding diagnostic and therapeutic options available to the needs of every person with lung cancer.

You’ll Have Your Own Team of Lung Cancer Experts

Cancer diagnosis and treatment requires an entire team of specialists and support caregivers who are truly experts in their fields. We use a patient-centered clinical care team that includes pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, nurses and allied caregivers, who will meet to create your personalized care plan.

They will coordinate your care from treatment through survivorship. You will also have access to information and support beyond your doctors and nurses.

You’ll Have Access to Leading Clinical Trials

At Columbia Cancer, the discoveries made here in our labs lead to new ways to treat cancer.

People who have lung cancer may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial in addition to current treatments. Clinical trials bring you access to the newest therapies, such as targeted treatments and immunotherapies.

You’ll Have a Wealth of Support Resources

Because we treat the whole person, not just the cancer, we have created Patient Support Services that provide care and support outside of traditional medical care. You will have access to alternative treatments like acupuncture, resources for stress management, yoga therapy, spiritual support, patient support groups, and more.
