What Surgical Considerations Are Most Important in Early Stage Lung Cancer?

By The Fellow on Call - Last Updated: September 22, 2023

Esteemed thoracic surgeon Dr. Jane Yanagawa joins The Fellow on Call trio to discuss the optimal surgical considerations for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Notably, when selecting the type of surgical resection, it is pertinent to consider lung anatomy, nodule location, and how much or little lymph node involvement is present. Furthermore, Dr. Yanagawa explains the importance of preoperative workup, the meaning and function of “VATS” (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery), how to determine if a patient is surgery-ready if a mass has spread into another structure, and much more.
