Northside Hospital Cancer Institute is Georgia's largest cancer network. According to Dr. Howard Silverboard, pulmonologist and physician lead for Northside’s Lung Cancer DSC Program, “This recognition is a remarkable testament to the hard work and commitment of the entire lung cancer team, consisting of surgeons, pulmonologists, specialized nursing care, nurse navigators, respiratory therapists and rehabilitation therapists."
“The vast majority of patients don’t show up to see a doctor until the cancer is advanced stage and there’s significantly limited amounts of things we can do at that point,” said Dr. Silverboard. “Screening for early detection is key in improving the odds in the fight against lung cancer.”
Northside also has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a High Performing hospital for Lung Cancer Surgery.
