Removes the tumor, part of the trachea, lymph nodes, and surrounding tissues -- depending on the type and size of the tumor and whether the tumor has spread. Our surgeons use a wide range of surgical approaches, including laser surgery, which can reduce bleeding. Our doctors may also use robotic tools to increase precision and visualization and to allow them to remove hard-to-reach tumors.
MRI and CT imaging technology pinpoints the precise location of the tumor, which is then targeted with beams of high-energy X-rays to destroy the cancer cells. This image-guided approach, used before and after surgery, minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
Kills or slows the growth of the tumor through medicines. Chemotherapy may be recommended if your cancer has spread.
