The thoracic cancer program at OSUCCC–James includes medical, surgical, plastic surgery, radiation oncologists, pathologists, pulmonologists, researchers and other experts focused on prevention, early diagnosis, and improved long term outcomes for patients with thoracic cancers. This exceptional team of experts uses multiple treatment modalities to optimize treatment plans for each patient. Combining innovative therapies, such as photodynamic therapy with other forms of intervention and developing expertise in minimally invasive surgical techniques has enabled our team to offer surgery to a greater number of patients.  This often includes patients who previously may have been considered unresectable. Our experts are actively involved in developing personalized therapy, chemotherapy that is effective against specific molecular defects of cancer rather than utilizing a one size fits all approach.

Our advanced expertise in all areas including pulmonary medicine, rehabilitation and anesthesia and our coordinated multi disciplinary care provides options for patients with lung cancer, esophageal cancer and mediastinal tumors which may not be found outside The James.
