The Buz Standefer Lung Center at CHI Memorial is this region’s best and only comprehensive lung center, offering the most advanced detection capabilities, interventional procedures and surgical treatments for lung-related diseases.
Millions of people are living with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The human lungs are complex and highly evolved organs that are essential to life. And while medical science has developed a deep knowledge of their function and related diseases, important research continues relentlessly and new insight is gained every day.
Lung cancer care is extremely complex because most patients need surgery, radiation and chemotherapy – or a combination of all three – to provide lifesaving treatment. And when it comes to lung cancer, coordinated care can mean the difference between life and death. That’s why CHI Memorial’s Buz Standefer Lung Center brings together a team of experts including interventional pulmonologists, radiologists, dedicated lung pathologists, thoracic (lung) surgeons, and medical and radiation oncologists to attack the cancer from every side.
