Providing Expert Care in Pulmonary Oncology
With approximately 200,000 fatalities per year, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States.
Lung cancer is considered an aggressive form of cancer, which means tumors often form and spread quickly beyond the lungs and into nearby tissue if left untreated. However, many tumors found in the lungs end up not being cancerous, which is why an accurate diagnosis is of the highest importance.
Accurate diagnostic screening is a primary area of focus at Deborah Heart and Lung Center’s Oncology Clinic. Our diverse, experienced team incorporates the skills and expertise of an oncologist, radiologist, pulmonologist, pathologist, surgeon, and clinical and administrative staff.
Deborah Oncology Clinic’s approach develops a “whole-patient” profile. Lung tumors are evaluated using the most advanced technologies including CT scans, bronchoscopy, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), and minimally-invasive video-assisted (VATS) biopsies. This technology is an effective tool in diagnosing and staging lung cancer, as well as detecting infections and inflammatory diseases in the lungs.
