  • Surgical Services

Comprehensive Treatment Planning

The Lung Cancer Clinic brings together a multidisciplinary team of leading experts in thoracic surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pulmonology, pathology, and radiology. Treatment strategies are developed with referring physicians and often involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of treatments and clinical trials when appropriate.

Diagnostic Services

The Lung Cancer Clinic uses comprehensive diagnostic evaluations, including endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), 3D navigational bronchoscopy, detailed radiographic evaluation, a bronchoscopic biopsy or needle biopsy to assist the team in determining the best course of treatment. Thoracic surgeons also may be asked to perform a minimally invasive biopsy of the lung lesion.

Surgical Services

The UnityPoint Health Trinity thoracic surgeons have expertise in a number of highly specialized technologies and minimally invasive surgical procedures to remove tumors of the lung, including:

  • Minimally invasive surgical options
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
  • Wedge resection  
  • Open surgery for complex malignancies

Medical Oncology Services

Medical oncologists specializing in lung cancer offer a full range of chemotherapy and biologic targeted therapies for all types and stages of cancer. Patients have access to the latest therapies and clinical trials.

When appropriate, lung cancer patients are placed on a clinical pathway, a disease-specific treatment strategy developed by our physicians to ensure that all patients receive consistent evidence-based care. Each pathway combines innovative and promising clinical trial options with the best standard of care therapies. Ongoing review by the clinical team ensures that each pathway remains the best and most effective treatment option available.

Radiation Therapy

Patients have access to a variety of advanced radiation planning and delivery systems:

  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
  • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)

Supportive Services
