Lung Cancer Care at Wilmot

Lung cancer is a challenging diagnosis—for you, or for someone you love. It is important to find the very best care available, but sorting through your choices can feel overwhelming.

To make the process simpler, we encourage you to ask this question: Which center offers lung cancer care that is sub-specialized?

The Wilmot Cancer Center is the only center in the region whose doctors are sub-specialized in lung cancer care. That means our surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, radiologists, pathologists and anesthesiologists are all dedicated to treating lung cancer.

There are several other reasons to make Wilmot your first choice for lung cancer care:

  • We provide true multidisciplinary care—our doctors work together to create the best treatment plan for your lung cancer.
  • We offer end-to-end care in one location. In most cases, you will see every doctor you need in one visit.
  • Wilmot has the most advanced treatments and technology, including minimally invasive robotic surgery (DaVinci system),  Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS), Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS), navigational bronchoscopy and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT).

Lung cancer clinical trials at Wilmot

For some lung cancer patients, clinical trials may provide the best chance for a cure. That is why it is important to know this fact: The Wilmot Cancer Center offers more lung cancer clinical trials than any other center in the region.

We are members of three large cooperative groups that participate in lung cancer clinical trials: the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG), the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology. These three cooperatives give our patients access to the most advanced new approaches for treating lung cancer.

Is a clinical trial right for you? It may be hard to say right now. But by coming to the Wilmot Cancer Center, you will keep that option open.
