Cardiothoracic Surgery: Thoracic Oncology
Lung cancer and esophageal cancer are very aggressive
diseases. Early detection is essential. Acting quickly and decisively can make the
difference between a cure and a life-limiting situation. The need to have in place
a system to encompass the prompt diagnosis and care of a cancer that often involves
complex treatment plans and coordination of services triggered the creation of the
multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program at the UF Health
Jacksonville Cancer Center.
By bringing a multispecialty approach to the diagnosis and treatment of cancers,
this program, backed by UF faculty physicians, can decrease evaluation time for
patients from weeks and months to just a few days.
