Newly diagnosed lung cancer patients have more reason to be optimistic than at any time in the past. Advancements in early detection and treatment have steadily improved the outlook in recent years.
At Norton Cancer Institute, our lung cancer oncologists and other specialists have extensive experience improving the lives of those with lung cancer. It’s a special need in Kentucky, which has the highest rates of lung cancer in the country.
More people in Louisville and Southern Indiana choose Norton Cancer Institute for lung cancer care than any other provider in the area. Our lung cancer oncologists and other specialists are board-certified and fellowship-trained leaders in their field. They’re at the forefront of new discoveries that help patients get back to living their lives.
If you’ve been diagnosed with lung cancer, you want to start getting better right away. That’s why we offer same-day appointments for newly diagnosed patients.
At Norton Cancer Institute, you’ll have a one-on-one relationship with your oncologist, surgeon, radiation oncologist or other specialist. The next cancer doctor you see will be either someone you know or someone you’ll be seeing again who knows your case.
We use the latest equipment and procedures to make a precise diagnosis of your cancer.
We can evaluate masses painlessly with ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging. Biopsies — procedures to extract tissue and examine it — are another way to precisely diagnose your lung cancer. We use robotic-assisted bronchoscopy to perform minimally invasive biopsies in the lungs, including often difficult-to-reach parts of the lung where airways are tiny.
Our advanced testing options will help your specialist determine a care plan that’s tailored for you based on the stage of your tumor and your treatment goals. Your comprehensive care team of physicians and other health care providers meets regularly to review your case and plan the next steps.
Your customized treatment plan may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, as well as targeted molecular therapies for certain subtypes of lung cancer.
Our state-of-the-art treatments include immunotherapy and biologic therapies that can provide a unique care plan designed specifically to target the genetic makeup of your cancer.
In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, we offer our patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
More patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana choose Norton Cancer Institute than any other provider in the area. We provide compassionate care for the whole person, not just the cancer.
Our Norton Cancer Institute oncologists are also researchers and principal investigators, offering patients sophisticated experience in the latest treatments and access to more than 200 clinical trials.
