Lung Cancer

Lung Cancer Program at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center

Our highly coordinated team approach to treating lung and thoracic cancer brings world class expertise, technology, and innovative treatment options together to help patients get the best possible outcome and maintain quality of life before, during, and after treatment.

Led by experts in treating lung and thoracic cancer, patients have access to a wide range of treatments and treatment combinations, including the most promising therapies and clinical trials for:

  • Non small cell lung cancer
  • Small cell lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Mediastinal tumors
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Metastatic lung cancer
  • Pleural cancer
  • Tracheal cancer
  • Chest wall tumors

Our collaborative approach begins on initial consultation. Members of the Lung and Thoracic Cancer Multidisciplinary Team, which may include thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, pathologists, pharmacists, and pulmonologists, come together for comprehensive review of all diagnostic testing and medical records for each patient.

They discuss and consider various treatment options, focusing on their area of expertise, and recommend a customized treatment plan procedures to meet patient needs.
