Lung cancer is the number one cancer killer in the U.S., causing more deaths than colon, breast, pancreatic and prostate cancer combined. Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana rank in the top 15 states for lung cancer deaths. Kentucky is ranked first. Fortunately, lung cancer can be curable if detected early.
At the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute Lung Cancer Center, we are focusing the expertise of the region’s most advanced lung cancer team on improving lung cancer survival through early detection, accurate diagnosis, state-of-the-art treatment and clinical trials.
Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of experts in every area of lung cancer. Our team is the most experienced in the Tri-State region at screening, diagnosing and treating lung cancer, from the simple to the most complex. With more experience, comes better outcomes. By combining the extensive, specialized lung cancer treatment experience of our clinicians with the power of scientific discovery, our team offers the most advanced care options available in the area. The team meets weekly to discuss and develop a personalized care plan for each patient.
Like all UC Cancer Institute-affiliated physicians, our lung cancer specialists are leaders in their field and also serve as faculty members at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, giving them access to the latest scientifically validated medical information to help patients live healthier lives. They also serve as educators for the next generation of physicians in training and provide continuing education opportunities for community physicians.
