Our Lung Service manages all lung disease, to improve our patients’ quality of care, clinical outcomes and their chance of survival.
Treating lung cancer
Lung cancer management is becoming increasingly complex, has a very wide range of symptoms, speed of growth and patterns of local and distant spread. Many patients have other health problems such as pulmonary and heart disease. These factors, together with the individual circumstances of a patient, pose a unique challenge to clinical teams charged with their care.
Dr Andrew Rosenstengel, Respiratory and Sleep Physician, is the Medical Chair of the Lung Service at Holy Spirit Northside Private Hospital. He heads our service’s multidisciplinary team comprising expert clinicians in:
- respiratory medicine
- thoracic surgery
- medical and radiation oncology
- palliative care
- lung cancer nursing.
