Expertise and Personalized Care in Diagnosing and Treating Tumors of the Lung and Chest

Cancers of the lung and chest can be challenging to diagnose, and treatment may require many specialists to deliver the best life-saving therapies.

The Lung Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital brings together in one place all the necessary experts to diagnose and treat cancers of the lung, esophagus, thymus and chest wall. Our innovative surgeons, including pioneers of the latest surgical treatments, have mastered techniques that enable a broader range of patients to be eligible for surgery so that we can give every patient the best opportunity for successful treatment.
