Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Downey "I am a chest surgeon who specializes in the treatment of patients with lung cancer, cancers that have spread to the lung from other sites, or tumors that arise from other structures in the chest, such as the thymus gland or the chest wall. In an attempt to improve on the results of surgery alone, my research focuses on choosing patients for combined medical and surgical therapies, and on determining the effectiveness of these therapies. My colleagues and I have published articles in the journal Lung Cancer and in the Journal of Clinical Oncology on these subjects. In addition, I have been a leader in organizing and completing national clinical trials evaluating combined therapies in lung cancer patients."
