Conquering Lung Cancer Through Early Detection
Lung cancer is deadlier than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined. But it can be cured if detected early. Einstein Healthcare Network is committed to diagnosing lung cancer at the earliest possible stage, and has offered a low dose CT lung cancer screening program before coverage by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
We offer low does CT screenings for those 55 to 77 years old who have smoked a pack a day or more for at least 30 years at no cost to the patient.
To schedule a lung cancer screening or for more information, call:215-456-8188.
Should you need further treatment, Einstein offers one of the most comprehensive centers for evaluation and treatment of lung cancer in the Philadelphia region.
We treat these pulmonary cancers:
At Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, we offer robotic surgery options to treat lung cancer. Throughout the entire network we use video-assisted techniques to identify the full extent of your cancer and offer both traditional and minimally invasive surgical techniques for lung surgeries, including:
Radiation therapy directs high-energy beams to shrink cancer cells and tumors. We offer options using the Varian Trilogy linear accelerator (LINAC), intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), RapidArc, and high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy.
We also use radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a minimally invasive cancer treatment using heat to destroy cancer cells.
Our cancer team works with you to develop and implement the most effective program to meet your individual needs. They help you and your family understand the various phases of care and answer any questions you may have.
