The Most Advanced Treatments, Right Here

Depending on your diagnosis and stage of cancer, we’ll design a treatment plan that takes advantage of the most effective and least invasive approaches available.

Advanced surgical options:

  • Robotic-assisted thoracic surgery. This state-of-the-art technique is less invasive than open surgery, while reducing pain, complications and length of hospital stay. We’re the only provider performing these types of surgeries in the greater Charlotte area.
  • Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). Your surgeon inserts a thin, lighted tube attached to a small camera through tiny incisions in the chest. This allows them to evaluate and treat your lung tumor in a minimally invasive way.

Innovative medical treatment options:

  • Chemotherapy. We offer the latest chemotherapy agents to destroy cancer cells, and it's now designed to produce fewer toxic side effects.
  • Radiation. New radiation techniques precisely target cancer cells with high-energy beams and with minimal damage to healthy tissue.
  • Targeted therapy. Anti-cancer drugs can slow or stop the growth of tumors by turning certain genes on or off.
  • Immunotherapy. These innovative therapies use the body’s own immune system to recognize and kill cancer cells.

Lifesaving Therapies Through Clinical Trials

When you need care that goes beyond current treatments, Levine Cancer Institute gives you access to potentially breakthrough cures through an extensive program of clinical trials.

Currently, patients can participate in more than 10 ongoing trials, including Phase 1 studies, for many types and stages of lung cancer.
