COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTIONS FOR THORACIC HEALTH

LUNG CANCER IN THE UNITED STATES

Every 2 ½ minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with lung cancer.([FOOTNOTE=Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Lung cancer facts. Lung Cancer Foundation Website. https://www.lungcancerfoundation.org/about-us/lung-cancer-facts. ],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) In fact, it’s the second most common type of cancer in the U.S.([FOOTNOTE=American Cancer Society.

Receiving a diagnosis is scary. And patients naturally have questions about their condition and treatment. We’re dedicated to providing resources to help answer those questions. 

MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY (MIS)

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is fast becoming the standard of care in thoracic oncology. As a minimally invasive surgery, it involves less disruption to muscle and ribs — so patients recover faster.([FOOTNOTE=Cleveland Clinic.
