They treat more than 400 patients a year with their leading-edge technology and treatment methods.

As Wisconsin’s only comprehensive cancer center, Carbone offers diagnostic testing like CT-guided technology for needle localization, as well as bronchoscopy and mediastinoscopy, which help to determine the staging of lung cancers. The center specializes in treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and minimally invasive surgeries like video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, and methods of treatment are determined by the team of experts at The Carbone Cancer Center.
