Thoracic Multidisciplinary Clinic
Compassionate Care for Thoracic Malignancies
The Thoracic Multidisciplinary Clinic is a program of the Lifespan Cancer Institute. Our clinic is the only one of its kind in the state entirely dedicated to the compassionate care of patients with thoracic malignancies. Our team-based approach brings together nationally recognized leaders and care specialists from multiple departments in the comprehensive treatment and research of these diseases.
Rhode Island Hospital is the first in the state to use a leading-edge lung biopsy procedure with robotic assistance. Hear Lifespan Cancer Institute’s Abbas El-Sayed Abbas, MD, explain how that helps patients.
Unique, Comprehensive Approach
At diagnosis, patients come in for one visit to see physicians and specialists from multiple disciplines, which may include surgical oncology, medical oncology, diagnostic imaging, pulmonary and critical care medicine, radiation oncology, palliative care, social work, psychiatry, nutrition, nursing, and complementary therapies such as acupuncture and massage therapy.
After this initial visit, our team meets with the patient to present a recommended plan of care. Patients also benefit from the services of a skilled nurse practitioner and an experienced, compassionate nurse navigator who assist patients and families with all aspects of their diagnosis and treatment.
Nationally Certified and Accredited
Our program is certified by the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Quality Oncology Practice Initiative and accredited by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer.
Research is currently being conducted to learn more about thoracic malignancies.
