Lung Cancer Treatment

If you are diagnosed with lung cancer, NYU Langone Medical Center has experts in all areas of lung cancer treatment to ensure that you get the best possible management.

An early stage lung cancer can often be cured with surgical removal. Our thoracic surgeons are skilled in the most advanced, least invasive procedures for removing lung cancer, including: video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy or segmentectomy, as well as robotic techniques. Our Department of Radiation Oncology offers the most innovative procedures in radiation therapy, including stereotactic radiation therapy, and intensity modulated radiation therapy, designed to deliver radiation to the tumor while minimizing exposure to normal cells. The Perlmutter Cancer Center’s experts in thoracic oncology can guide patients through personalized treatment options, including the most up-to-date therapies available, as well as some investigational treatments.
