Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the United States. Our lung cancer doctor treats locally advanced lung cancer patients with concurrent chemo Irradiation using VMAT, IMRT, or with the much more focal, targeted stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), another lung cancer therapy. Our pulmonologists and radiologists evaluate patients with lung cancer to determine which lung cancer treatment would be the safest way to establish a diagnosis and determine the patient’s suitability for surgery. Some patients are better candidates for chemo Irradiation. Our preferred surgical partners for lung cancer treatment in thoracic oncology are our colleagues at the North Florida Medical Center in Gainesville. Lung cancer treatment varies but may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted drug therapy, and immunotherapy.
