Lung Cancer

At Memorial Sloan Kettering we offer the latest innovations in lung cancer detection and therapy, including genetic testing of tumors and clinical trials of new therapies and drug combinations.

Our thoracic surgery team performs more lung cancer surgeries than any other medical center in the New York metropolitan area ─ more than 500 each year ─ ranking it among the highest-volume centers in the nation. Whenever possible, we use minimally invasive approaches, including robotic and video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), which are associated with faster recovery times than traditional open surgeries.
