USC Lung Cancer Program

Comprehensive Lung Cancer Treatments

At the USC Lung Cancer Program, we know that lung cancer treatment is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking. Our comprehensive, integrated approach to care allows us to design a customized plan for patients with all types and stages of lung cancer. Our offerings draw from the experience and expertise of physicians from a wide range of specialties, including radiation oncology, medical oncology, pulmonology, surgery and radiology.

Patient with two doctors

Our multidisciplinary team works in close collaboration to leverage the latest advances in lung cancer care and provide you with all the treatment options available, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, surgery, photodynamic therapy and lung ablation. It takes a combination of experts to determine the best type of treatment, often requiring a strategic blend of surgical, radiotherapy and medicine-based options — all tailored to target your specific lung cancer type.

Our medical oncologists will help you choose the most effective medication strategy for your type of lung cancer, while our radiation oncologists will incorporate the latest technology and radiation therapy techniques.

If your customized treatment plan requires lung cancer surgery, you can rely on the expertise of our lung cancer surgeons, both in and out of the operating room. Utilizing a suite of state-of-the-art tools, our surgeons are able to treat even the most challenging cases.

Our program also offers minimally invasive treatment options, including lung ablation and photodynamic therapy, delivered by our highly skilled interventional pulmonologists and interventional radiologist.

Whether you need an advanced surgical procedure, radiation therapy, targeted medications or a minimally invasive option, our lung cancer experts will design a comprehensive treatment plan tailored just for you.
