The Division of Thoracic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital began providing oncology treatment for patients with cancer of the lungs and chest over 25 years ago. Our innovative program—the first of its kind in the United States—continues to grow in size and reputation. Now, under The Lung Center, our cancer programs include a team of medical and surgical specialists providing integrated care for every type of lung and chest cancer.
With close attention to patient and family needs, we educate patients about their specific type of cancer and treatment options so they can make informed decisions. We offer a range of supportive services, including nutritional counseling, emotional and spiritual support, financial advice and complementary therapies, such as acupuncture and massage. Our goal is to treat the whole person throughout the cancer experience—from diagnosis to treatment to recovery.
