Expert, Personalized Care for Lung Cancer Surgery

Cancers of the lung and chest can be challenging to diagnose, and life-saving treatment may require many specialists, including expert lung cancer surgeons. The Lung Center at Brigham and Women's Hospital brings together all the necessary experts in one place to diagnose and treat cancers of the lung, thymus and chest wall. 

Our innovative surgeons include pioneers of the most advanced and safest lung cancer treatments. Many surgeries performed at the Lung Center use minimally invasive techniques, in which a smaller incision leads to faster recovery, greater comfort and maximum preservation of healthy lung tissue. Our expertise in minimally invasive surgery and VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery) as well as robotic surgery, another method for minimally invasive surgery, broadens the range of patients who are candidates for surgery, giving every patient the very best opportunity for successful treatment.
