Christine Bestvina, MD, and lung cancer patient, Kevin Sachs
Medical oncologist Christine Bestvina, MD, specializes in lung cancer treatment and is actively researching new and better ways to treat the disease.

Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer every three minutes. But today, the outlook for a person with lung cancer is better than ever, thanks to better insights into the disease, new medicines, advanced technology and less invasive surgery. Most patients with lung cancer need more than one type of therapy as part of their care plan. Patients at the University of Chicago Medicine have access to traditional treatments, such as chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy, as well as clinical trials of the newest targeted treatments, including immunotherapies. We offer sophisticated and compassionate care to patients every step of the way.

Where you or a family member with lung cancer starts the care journey matters. Patients and families affected by this disease benefit from one of the most experienced lung cancer teams in the country. Experts in eight specialties come together weekly to discuss their patients, providing their unique input so the team can develop the most effective care plan for each individual.
