When you come to the Institute for lung and thoracic cancer treatment, you can expect:
- A complete treatment plan that considers all aspects of your health and well-being
- A team of experts who collaborate on your treatment and work together to support you throughout the cancer journey
- The latest diagnostic technology and treatment options available all under one roof
During this procedure, your doctor will make small incisions in your chest and insert a thin tube with a camera on the end (thoracoscope). Your doctor will then insert small tools into the incisions to remove tissue, tumors or drain fluid.
Your treatment experience will depend on your diagnosis, the type of surgery you receive and underlying health conditions. At the Institute, we strive to use minimally invasive surgery whenever possible, which usually results in less pain during recovery. Minimally invasive surgery also helps limit blood loss, reduces recovery time and lowers the risk of complications during surgery.
At Lynn Cancer Institute, we treat cancer in today’s patients and offer hope for those who may get the disease in the future. Through clinical trials, we study promising new ways to diagnose and treat cancer. As our patient, you have access to these trials and treatments that aren’t widely available elsewhere. If a clinical trial may be right for you, we’ll talk with you about the potential benefits and risks. We make your overall well-being and safety our top priority if you choose to participate.
