Washington University general thoracic surgeons are part of a multidisciplinary team that treats lung cancer at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center.
Experience and Teamwork
The thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists at the Siteman Cancer Center treat the highest volume of lung cancer cases in the St. Louis region. Thus, they have seen almost all forms of the disease and offer a wide range of drugs as well as radiation and surgical treatment options. Access to clinical trials also is available.
A multidisciplinary approach is important in the treatment of cancers. In addition to various specialists, the Siteman team also includes psychologists and social workers who can help with the emotional and financial challenges facing people with a lung cancer diagnosis.
For a lung surgery consultation, call (888) 287-8741 or (314) 362-6025.
