From the time a patient is referred to the program, our nurse navigator expedites scheduling. Within a few working days, patients meet with a thoracic surgical team to begin a treatment plan that includes state-of-the-art testing, case review by the tumor board, and appropriate consultations with other specialists.
In the past, what might have taken months is now bringing patients a plan of action in a matter of just weeks.
The St. Mary’s of Michigan Lung Cancer team is committed to providing the fastest and most comprehensive services available. A nurse navigator is available immediately to consult with you and collect a comprehensive history to assess your risk for the disease.
Our multidisciplinary team of physicians works together closely to provide the optimal treatment regimen for every patient with lung cancer, providing important advantages for those who:
- Have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer
- Have risk factors for lung cancer
- Have been referred by their primary care provide or another surgeon for a second opinion about their lung cancer
