      Performed lung surgery on me in Feb 2008 at Palos Hospital.2nd stage non-small cell lung cancer confined to the top section of my right lung. Surgery removed the top section along with two swollen lymph nodes. After 5-6 days in the hospital I recovered at home and followed with chemotherapy. It is now almost 8 years from surgery and periodic follow-up scans have indicated I am, at present, cancer free. I am 78 years old.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
