State-of-the-art Treatment Approaches

Varian_TrubeamPatients with lung/thoracic cancer can be confident that they are receiving the highest quality care that uses the latest technology and treatment approaches.

When appropriate, we offer patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials that will help define the standard of care over the next 50 years. These trials enable your physicians to work toward the ultimate goal of improving treatments for patients throughout Wisconsin and the world.

Palliative Care

In recent years, it has become clear that palliative care is an essential part of cancer care. Palliative care focuses on improving a patient’s quality of life. It includes measures to reduce pain and treatment side effects and manage the physical and emotional challenges associated with a serious illness.

Our physicians, nurses, social workers and therapists work together to provide palliative care for patients with or without curative treatment for their disease.
