Lung Cancer Treatment Options
Dr. Anil Dhople with the Health First Medical Group discusses new treatment options for patients who are not medically fit to undergo a major surgery.
New advancements in technology have given these patients who would normally not be a candidate for traditional surgery a chance for cure with the use of Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT).
Long term studies have shown cure rates of 90% using the SBRT technology. Advancements in technology with SBRT have now given patients with early stage lung cancer a chance for cure without surgery.
