The Lung Cancer and Thoracic Oncology Program at Weill Cornell Medicine provides comprehensive, expert care at every stage and for every type of thoracic cancer, including cancers of the lung, pleura and thymus.
From diagnosis to remission, we treat each patient as an individual, tailoring our approach to meet their unique needs.
Patients at Weill Cornell Medicine work with a team of cancer specialists. Our experts include thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, interventional pulmonologists and interventional radiologists. They collaborate to provide comprehensive treatment plans and science-based solutions.
We offer a full range of diagnostic and treatment protocols, tailored to address each patient’s case history and risk factors.
Those treatment options extend to clinical trials, which give patients access to cutting-edge treatments that may not be available elsewhere. These trials are an extension of our physicians’ scientific research into new and better ways to treat lung and thoracic cancer.
Weill Cornell Medicine employs a holistic approach to care. In addition to your cancer treatment, we offer several support services and complementary medical care.
Depending on your needs, our cancer experts can refer to other medical specialists — such as registered dieticians, pain specialists, genetic counselors or fertility experts — as well as support groups.
In addition to Thoracic Tumor Board, our coordinated care is facilitated by a single electronic health record. Each member of your care team has access to this record, ensuring that everyone is aware of all your treatments and symptoms.
Patients can also access their health records through Weill Cornell Connect, our patient portal. The portal is available through our website or through the Weill Cornell Medicine mobile app. Patients can also use Connect to contact their care team and conduct other treatment-related activities.
