From diagnosis through treatment and follow-up, PinnacleHealth’s lung cancer team offers you comprehensive and compassionate lung cancer care.
Chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and targeted therapies are the main treatment options for lung cancer. A number of factors determine which treatment will be best for you, including the type and stage of your cancer, the location of the tumor(s), and genetic or other molecular characteristics.
Advanced treatment options include:
Surgery with the daVinci® Surgical System
Access to clinical trials
