The MHP Center for Chest Disease and Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program are dedicated to early detection, diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant disease of the organs in the chest, including the lungs, esophagus, and mediastinum. The program’s board certified thoracic surgeons are trained and experienced in a variety of surgical approaches, including robotic thoracic surgery, Video Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS), laparoscopic surgery, interventional bronchoscopy, Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB/”SuperDimension”), Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS), and advanced endoscopy to diagnose and treat diseases of the chest.
The Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Program (MTOP) at the MHP Center for Chest Disease brings together the diverse expertise of specialists in thoracic surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, and pathology to provide comprehensive diagnosis, staging and treatment for our patients with known or suspected cancer within the chest. The MTOP team evaluates each patient to recommend individualized treatment options. When faced with a cancer diagnosis, having the right doctors with the right expertise makes all the difference. Having your doctors work collaboratively on the same team is a game changer.
All of your care is coordinated by our highly trained Nurse Navigator. Our navigator will guide you through the whole process, assuring your needs and questions are addressed and all studies and tests are completed and reviewed promptly. We also provide services, such as psychosocial support, social work consultation and financial counseling. You can expect to be treated as a person, not just a diagnosis.
If you or your doctor thinks you might benefit from seeing us at the MHP Center for Chest Disease, call our Nurse Navigator, Maggie Siebeneichen, R.N. at 240-566-4559.
