The Lung Nodule Clinic of the LungCARE Center at the Medical Arts Plaza provides innovative pulmonary programs that utilize a multi-disciplinary team approach with emphasis on patient-centered care.
The clinic aims toward the early detection and treatment of lung nodules and thoracic malignancies through reducing delays in the evaluation and treatment of patients.
Patients referred to the Lung Nodule Clinic can expect to receive an appointment with CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Pulmonary Medicine as early as within 48 hours of the request. The Lung Nodule Clinic initiates standardized follow-up and treatment pathways specific to the current disease process of each patient.
The Lung Nodule Clinic offers early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung disease and disorders using the most advanced screening and treatment options.
The program utilizes low-dose chest computerized tomography (CT) screening and follow-up pathways recommended by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). The low-dose CT screen offers less than one-fourth of the radiation doses of standard CT screens. CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Cardiothoracic Surgery specializes in minimally invasive video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) that offers fewer complications and shorter recovery time than traditional thoracic surgery techniques.
The experts at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Pulmonary Medicine and CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Cardiothoracic Surgery work closely together with radiologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists to assess each patient’s condition to determine the most suitable treatment plan.
