Lung Cancer Care at Sharp Memorial Hospital
Our lung cancer team is with you every step of the way.
At the Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute at Sharp Memorial Hospital, our expert team is dedicated to the prevention, detection and treatment of lung cancer. We offer advanced technologies and treatments, and provide highly coordinated care and ongoing support.
The latest in lung cancer diagnosis and treatment options.
We use state-of-the-art equipment for diagnosing and treating lung cancer, including:
- Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) — a minimally invasive, highly effective diagnostic procedure that collects lung tissues without traditional surgery.
- Robotic surgery — minimally invasive procedures that use flexible tools to give surgeons enhanced vision, precision and control. These procedures can lead to a shorter hospital stay, less pain and a quicker recovery.
- Precision radiation — a variety of radiation techniques that precisely target lung tumors and reduce exposure of healthy tissues to radiation.
- Chemotherapy — medication that flows through the body and targets fast-growing cancer cells.
You also have access to the latest clinical trials that offer innovative options for targeting lung cancer.

At Sharp Memorial, we don't just treat your cancer, we care for you. Our team of dedicated specialists includes surgeons, oncologists, pulmonologists, nutrition and genetic counselors, social workers, nurse navigators, and more — all working together to care for your every need.
