Surgical Options for Lung Cancer

A true multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment is what you will find when you seek care with our team at the University of Colorado.  We combine the expertise of thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses, social workers, and counselors to collaborate on your case from start to finish. Not every type of cancer or patient may have lung surgery as an option for treatment of their disease. 

All of our providers have subspecialized in cancers of the lung and chest, which means they know the latest proven treatments and research.
