Your lung and chest cancer team
We take a true multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer. That means we bring a number of cancer specialists – including thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses, social workers, counselors and more to review your case, follow its progress and develop ways to achieve the best results.
Being at an academic medical center allows many of these professionals to subspecialize – in other words, they focus solely on lung and chest cancers. That generally means they not only know the latest proven treatments and research, but they are often on the forefront of discovering them.
Lung Cancer Colorado Fund
Overseen by the physicians and scientists of the University of Colorado’s Lung Cancer Program, the Lung Cancer Colorado Fund is used to support many different needs of the University and UCHealth’s combined fight against lung cancer.
