Minimally invasive procedures

Our board-certified thoracic surgeons are experts in minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). These advances allow for faster recovery and reduced pain compared with traditional open surgery.

Preserving lung function

We also offer brachytherapy, an innovative technique that involves implanting a radioactive mesh during your procedure. Its benefits include reduced risk of recurrence and preserved lung function.

Screening for early detection

We also provide lung cancer screenings — especially for individuals at high risk, such as smokers or former smokers — which allows for early detection and treatment. Our comprehensive lung cancer screenings have earned WellSpan Cancer Institute a designation as a GO2 Center of Excellence.

Multidisciplinary team

Our lung cancer care team is a collaborative group of highly skilled surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonary medicine specialists, gastroenterologists and interventionalists. We're all working to deliver the personalized and comprehensive care you deserve.
