Rush Excellence in Lung Cancer Care

  • National leaders in lung cancer surgery: Your lung cancer treatment may include surgery. And at Rush, you're in good hands. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons designated Rush as a three-star program for lobectomy (the most common surgery for lung cancer). This is the society’s highest-ranking, given only to the top 5% thoracic surgery programs in the United States. Surgeons at Rush perform more than 86% of lobectomies for stage I lung cancer in a minimally invasive fashion, compared to less than 50%. This approach allows you to recover more quickly and with less pain than traditional open surgery.
  • Internationally recognized for excellence in patient care: Your care team will put you at the center of every decision about your treatment. This patient-centered approach led the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer to name the Rush lung cancer program as one of five worldwide recipients of the foundation’s inaugural Cancer Care Team Award — which recognizes programs that provide the highest quality patient care.
  • A leader in precision medicine: The lung cancer team works closely with Tempus — a biotechnology company that analyzes your specific genetic and clinical data and provides information about how your specific cancer may respond to targeted treatments. This allows your care team to tailor treatment to find the most effective option for treating your specific cancer.
  • Lung cancer screening to detect lung cancer early: If you have a high risk of developing lung cancer, lung cancer screening — available at all three Rush hospitals — helps detect lung cancers in their earliest stages, when they are most treatable. Our lung cancer screening sites are designated screening centers of excellence by the Lung Cancer Alliance — a designation given to centers that meet the highest standards for lung cancer screening.
