Thoracic Cancer

Treating Cancers that Develop in the Lungs & Chest

Patients with diagnosed or suspected lung cancer and those with cancers of the esophagus, trachea, chest wall, pericardium and pulmonary system can count on the thoracic oncologists of Florida Hospital Medical Group for individualized, thorough evaluation, consultation and treatment. Our outstanding specialists regularly perform lobectomy and bilobectomy surgeries to address early-stage, non-small cell lung cancers. They also perform wedge resections and complex mediastinoscopy procedures to detect lung cancer, lymphoma and infections. We are also capable of helping patients with less-common forms of the disease, including small-cell lung cancer, sarcomas, carcinoid tumors and tumors that have metasticized to the lungs from other parts of the body.

Our thoracic oncologists are constantly on the leading edge of scientific advancements and clinical trials aimed at increasing every patient’s likelihood of a cure. Our minimally invasive approaches to thoracic cancers, including revolutionary video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VAT) lobectomy and robot-assisted lobectomy, have boosted patient outcomes and cemented our place among Florida’s top resources for thoracic cancer care.
