When a patient shows up in our thoracic surgery office at University Thoracic Surgeons, they're often facing the most difficult health issue of their life. I think the thing that we're blessed with is a team of committed individuals that recognize that and handle the patients with a great deal of empathy and care. And what we're able to demonstrate to them is that they found in us a partner in fighting this. Lung cancer was really thought to - and still does in some cases - carry a very grave prognosis. That said, if it's caught early enough - which we're doing much more these days - operating - often with minimally invasive techniques - allows the patients to begin with a very frightening diagnosis and come out at the other end cured.
