The multidisciplinary thoracic clinic at the Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center provides state-of-the-art care to our lung and esophageal cancer patients, as well as patients with other thoracic cancers. Our innovative approaches include:

  • Full-body stereotactic radiosurgery to pinpoint thoracic tumors
  • Targeted therapies matched to individual tumor mutations through genotyping
  • Expertise in the most advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive procedures
  • Frameless stereotactic radiosurgery to pinpoint tumors while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Access to clinical trials of promising new therapeutic agents

Multidisciplinary Patient Care

Our multidisciplinary group of thoracic cancer experts develops and implements a personalized care plan for each patient. Depending on the stage and other characteristics of a patient’s cancer, treatment may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these therapies. Our physicians work closely with their colleagues at Mass General in Boston, and can provide integrated access to specialists and treatments there if they are not available at our Danvers facility.

Members of your care team meet with you regularly and communicate frequently with your referring physician to ensure seamless coordination of care.
