Lung cancer and other related conditions that cause damage to the lungs must be treated individually for each case. Sometimes, related treatments to pneumonectomy may be recommended for patients with less severe or more severe damage to the lungs. Once a diagnosis is made, doctors at Florida Hospital work with patients to determine the best treatment plan available.
For example, many patients with early stages of lung cancer undergo surgery as part of the treatment plan. For less or more severe conditions, these other treatment options may be recommended in place of pneumonectomy:
- Wedge resection
- Sleeve resection
If pneumonectomy is the appropriate treatment, different treatment plans may include pneumonectomy surgery as well as any of these related treatments:
- Radiation therapy
- Targeted therapy
