CHI Memorial Chest and Lung Cancer Center provides minimally invasive and traditional surgical treatment options for cancers of the chest, esophagus and lungs. 

Lung cancer is a complex disease that requires many approaches to treat it effectively, and that often includes surgery. But minimally invasive techniques and advanced technologies available only at CHI Memorial Chest and Lung Cancer Center are changing the way people think about surgery – and lung cancer care. 

In the past, fear of lung cancer surgery was sometimes greater than the fear of cancer itself. Minimally invasive techniques, specialized scopes and robotic surgery using the daVinci® robotic surgical system are innovative tools surgeons use to minimize pain and maximize effectiveness. These advances are offering surgeons new ways to protect patients and their immune systems while finding the most effective way for the cancer to be attacked. Other improvements in anesthesia medications and enhanced recovery techniques are making recovery faster and easier than ever before.  

CHI Memorial Chest and Lung Cancer Center is rated in the top six percent of the country for lobectomy for lung cancer and in the top eight percent for esophagectomy surgeries.  These distinguished ratings by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) place the practice among the elite for general thoracic surgery in the United States and Canada.

Second Opinion Clinic


If you’ve been told it’s lung cancer, the thought of living with this disease and going through treatment can be overwhelming. Some might even feel like giving up hope. But at CHI Memorial, you have options in this fight.  For the last 50 years, little improvement was made in how lung cancer was treated – but that’s changing. Breakthroughs in drug therapies, radiation and surgical techniques are helping people live longer and better lives than we ever thought possible. 

At CHI Memorial, our team of lung cancer experts are on your side in the fight against cancer, and use the latest staging, diagnostic and interventional technologies, advanced radiation and chemotherapy, and cutting-edge surgical techniques available in the region. 

Unless you’re receiving care from a team who is focused only on treating lung cancer, you may be missing out on the latest approaches to beating this disease. If you’ve received a diagnosis you don’t understand, we want to talk with you. We want to help.  

Please call (423) 495-5864 (LUNG) if you have any questions.
