Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Arndt "With newer imaging techniques and better cancer detection, a lot of the cancers that we find now are getting picked up at earlier and earlier stages. We're finding more and more patients are being found to have stage 1 lung cancer - which is potentially curable with surgery alone. We're able to do most of our cancer operations using really three small incisions, the largest of which is about two inches long. And that's essentially made just to be able to remove the lobe or the part of the lung where the cancer is. Many of our patients who get operated on for an early stage lung cancer can leave the hospital the next morning - roughly 24 hours after they've undergone the operation. There's always something really gratifying about seeing that patient a week or two later feeling so much more recovered at that point in time, coming in in his or her own clothing rather than wearing the hospital gown. And a lot of the patients really have a renewed sense of hope at that point, and it's really nice to see them in that post-operative period"
