Buz Standefer Lung Center was established based on a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach to diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical intervention and recovery in a holistic manner. Our philosophy centers on you as an indivdiual, with special attention given to appropriately simple and direct communication at every step that you and your family can understand.
That team approach includes weekly tumor conferences where related specialists participate in a comprehensive review of patient cases, a thorough exchange of ideas, and in-depth discussion of treatment options and modalities. And since using low-dose CT screening for identifying lung cancer in high risk patients, more cancers are being treated in earlier stages.
Based on a number of professionally recognized and respected parameters, the Center and its staff rank among the elite lung care facilities nationally, and the in-patient nursing staff have received national recognition for patient satisfaction.
