Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United States. Early diagnosis offers a greater probability of cure. At the Atlantic Health System Pulmonary Center, we offer a full-service lung cancer diagnosis and treatment program in collaboration with the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center. Our program offers state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, minimally invasive diagnostic, staging and surgical procedures, and world-class surgeons and physicians.

Our thoracic surgeons are part of a multi-disciplinary program at the Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown and Overlook medical centers with colleagues from other specialties – including pulmonary medicine, medical oncology, radiation oncology, ENT, infectious disease and cardiology - to guarantee our patients the best possible care.

Diagnostic testing available:

  • CT scans
  • Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB)
  • Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)
  • Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)
  • Flexible and rigid bronchoscopy
  • PET scans
  • Video-mediastinoscopy

In addition, Newton Medical Center provides pulmonary function testing for cancer patients.

Chemotherapy and Radiation

Patients with more advanced tumors may be offered chemotherapy and radiation therapy to improve surgical outcomes. Patients who require radiotherapy for management of their tumors are offered both conventional and image-guided techniques, such as CyberKnife or brachytherapy – the placement of radioactive seeds at the site of a tumor.

Chemotherapy is provided at Carol G. Simon Cancer Center at Morristown and Overlook Medical Centers, and at Newton Medical Center in a comfortable environment by expert medical oncologists and oncology-certified nurses. State-of-the-art clinical trials, often employing the latest biologic therapies, may also be available to patients who meet the criteria for those trials.

Surgery

Our lung cancer surgery program at Morristown and Overlook Medical Centers features nationally renowned surgeons and an award-winning nursing staff certified in oncology and dedicated to lung cancer treatment.

Minimally-invasive video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of benign and malignant conditions of the lung and surrounding areas. Patients undergoing VATS have far fewer complications than traditional open-chest surgery patients and can usually eat and walk on the day of surgery.

When necessary, our surgeons also perform open thoracotomy procedures on larger, more centrally located tumors.
