Our lung cancer team can offer you the most advanced options for both diagnosis and treatment. Three treatment modalities are available to patients with lung cancer:
Surgical removal of lung cancer is the gold standard of treatment. However, sometimes further treatment is necessary. You should know that at MedStar Franklin Square we offer two advanced lung cancer treatments:
CyberKnife with Synchrony is a breakthrough technology used to treat many types of inoperable or surgically difficult (hard for surgeons to reach) tumors, and is especially successful for treating lung cancer.
At MedStar Franklin Square, you will work with the country's leading and most experienced CyberKnife specialists, as well as your own patient navigator, to address all of your concerns and get you on the road to recovery.
Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose, treat and alleviate symptoms of lung cancer. Since only very small incisions are needed, healing is fast with minimal pain and complications. VATS is one of the surgical treatment options we offer for lung cancer.
MedStar Franklin Square's thoracic surgeons, some of the most experienced in the nation, have the expertise to ensure that your VATS procedure will go smoothly so you'll get back to the most important things faster-living your life.
