Why choose Cabrini for your care
The diagnosis of lung cancer can be very overwhelming. Unfortunately, lung cancer does not discriminate between men, women, smokers, ex-smokers and non-smokers. Depending on the symptoms, condition and severity of the disease patients’ needs can be very different. For this reason, team approach is crucial in the treatment of lung cancer.
At Cabrini we involve all members of our team and review cases regularly, to develop an individualised care plan for each patient. Our lung unit team is comprised of highly skilled respiratory and interventional physicians, thoracic surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists, psycho-oncologists, exercise physiologists, dietitians and specialist nurses.
We also understand the importance of involving you and your family in decisions about your care, and respecting your individual preferences. We offer a holistic approach at Cabrini and care for your physical, psychological and emotional needs.
Fast access to lung cancer specialists and diagnostic services
If you choose to be treated at Cabrini you will have rapid access to leading clinical experts who use the latest technological and treatment innovations. We aim to see new patients within two to three days of diagnosis or referral. Medical imaging can usually be done the following day, and biopsies within three to five days. Following the initial assessment we provide fast referrals to our sub-specialty colleagues to allow appropriate treatment to start as soon as possible.
