At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), our team of experienced practitioners work with you to develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan to help you fight your lung cancer.
Several people make up your Care team at CTCA
- When you come to CTCA, you will meet with a medical oncologist who will evaluate your situation, assess all of your treatment options and help plan the best treatment suited to you. You may also meet with a surgical oncologist and radiation oncologist to learn more about specific treatment options.
- In addition to meeting with your oncologist, you will meet with other practitioners who specialize in complementary therapies, such as nutrition, naturopathy, mind-body medicine, physical therapy, pain management and more.
- At our hospitals, you will be paired with a care manager, who will be attentive to your concerns and needs throughout your relationship with CTCA. From your first visit to CTCA, through your treatment in our hospitals, to your return home, your CTCA care manager is there for you. If you have any questions, you can contact your care manager at any time.
