Lung Treatments

Royal Brompton and Harefield Specialist Care provides a range of treatments for lung conditions, including pioneering minimally invasive procedures and complex thoracic surgery.

We are a major centre for lung, chest and oesophageal cancers and non malignant thoracic surgery, with more than 2,300 inpatients cared for each year. Our consultants use some of the most sophisticated and advanced techniques available, often performing successful operations on patients with ‘inoperable’ cancers.

Our multi-disciplinary team includes surgeons, histopathologists, radiologists, specialist nurses, palliative care specialists and oncologists, allowing each patient to have a ‘consensus treatment plan’ with immediate access to the best treatment available.
