Multidisciplinary Team Approach

  • Patient Care Coordinator - A patient care coordinator responsible for keeping patient and staff lines of communication open and promoting patient satisfaction, the Coordinator works closely with the Lung Cancer Centre team.
  • Pulmonologists - Physicians who diagnose and treat all lung diseases, including lung cancer. They perform many procedures that facilitate the diagnosis and initial management of lung cancer, including:
    • Bronchoscopies with direct visualization of the lung airways to obtain tissue for biopsies
    • Evaluations of lung function
    • Rehabilitation of lung function in order to determine if patients will be able to tolerate the surgical removal of a portion of a lung
    • Treatment of respiratory symptoms and complications of lung cancer patients
    • Consultations on lung cancer screenings
    • Implementation of smoking cessation programs
  • Pathologists - Physicians who diagnose medical problems by studying cells and tissue samples under a microscope. They analyze tissue removed for lung biopsies.
  • Radiologists - Physicians who diagnose medical problems by conducting and interpreting imaging studies produced with X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scans and ultrasound. They play an important role in determining a lung cancer diagnosis.
  • Interventional Radiologists - Physicians highly trained in radiologic imaging, interventional radiologists use small needles, guidewires and catheters to diagnose and treat disease.
  • Medical Oncologists – Medical Oncologists are specialized in the medical management of lung cancer. They offer cutting-edge "targeted" and ground-breaking therapies including the opportunity to participate in exciting clinical trials. Medical oncologists at Dharamshila Lung Cancer Centre have wide-ranging experience with the latest cancer therapies, including:
    • The newest forms of chemotherapy
    • Targeted agents
    • Anti-angiogenesis agents
    • Radiation sensitizing treatments
    • Anti-nausea drugs
    • Palliative medicines to minimize the troublesome effects of lung cancer and its treatment
  • Radiation Oncologists – Cancerspecialists with advanced training and expertise in radiation therapy. Radiation oncologists at Dharamshila Lung Cancer Centre are experienced and skilled in the use of the most sophisticated treatment technologies, including:
    • Linear Accelerators capable of delivering a wide variety of radiation energies, depending on individual patient needs
    • CT Simulator, the most advanced 3-D simulation system that has set the standard for radiotherapy planning
    • IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), which uses very sophisticated computer technology to deliver carefully calibrated radiation beams to targeted tumors while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Thoracic Surgeons - Surgeons who perform complex surgical procedures (open and minimally invasive) of the thoracic cavity, including the lungs, esophagus, chest wall and mediastinum. Thoracic surgeons at Dharamshila Lung Cancer Centre perform a wide range of surgical procedures including:
    • Lung cancer resections
    • Video thoracoscopy
    • Bronchoscopy
    • Mediastinoscopy
    • Esophageal resections for cancers and other disorders
    • Diagnosis and surgical treatment of mediastinal disease
    • Removal of chest wall tumors and chest wall reconstruction
