About Me:

Dr. Tyler Greenfield

  • 30+ years experience with surgical treatment of lung cancer
  • I have been working on an organized description of recent advances in lung cancer treatment
  • I have used this knowledge in recommending successful treatments to my patients
  • I have been a Chairman of our local multidisciplinary thoracic tumor board working closely with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists
  • Surgical treatment has traditionally been the mainstay of lung cancer treatment
  • Many patients with surgically resected lung cancer recur and it was learned that post-operative or adjuvant chemotherapy extended the survival rate and decreased the recurrence rate
