Our Approach and Expertise
Every person who comes to Memorial Sloan-Kettering for lung cancer treatment receives personalized care from an expert lung cancer disease management team. The team is made up of physicians, nurses, and therapists who focus exclusively on cancers arising in the chest.
Specialists representing the full range of approaches for treating lung cancer work together to design and implement a treatment plan that is tailored to your individual needs. Receiving care from a team of experts in chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and quality of life issues ensures that you will receive the combination of therapies that will most effectively address your condition and provide you the best chance of success.
Because our doctors, nurses, and therapists are engaged in research related to all aspects of care, we are aware of the latest scientific discoveries and medical advances. We are also constantly testing new ways to fight lung cancer. This means that patients at Memorial Sloan-Kettering have access to clinical trials of new treatment options that are not available in most other hospitals. If participating in a clinical trial could be right for you, your doctor may offer you the opportunity to join one as part of your plan of care.
