Lung, Bronchus & Esophagus
As a patient of the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, you receive care from expert physicians who use the most innovative approaches to treat a variety of lung, bronchus and esophageal cancers. We also offer unique approaches to treating early stage esophageal cancer and Barrett’s esophagus, which is a risk factor for esophageal cancer caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). These novel techniques are less invasive to your body, which helps to preserve the natural anatomy of your esophagus, minimizes the risk of complications and reduces your recovery time.
With the strength of our vigorous research programs, you have access to effective new clinical trials and therapies. Our cancer care staff coordinates your personalized treatment plan every step of the way, supporting your challenges, keeping your spirits up, listening to your concerns and strengthening your overall wellbeing.
Why the Cancer Institute?
Cancer Institute doctors are among the most experienced specialists in the country, and we develop treatment plans based on years of expertise and evidence-based success. Our team includes surgical oncologists (doctors who remove cancer through surgery), radiation oncologists (doctors who use radiation to treat cancer), medical oncologists (doctors who use specialized drugs to treat cancer), radiologists (doctors who use imaging to diagnose cancer), and pathologists (doctors who look at tumor tissue removed at biopsy or surgery to diagnose and identify different types of cancer).
Our scientists and physicians continually research new treatments and cures that allow us to bring medical discoveries from the laboratory directly to you. These breakthroughs help us to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
