Treating Lung Metastases with Image-Guided Ablation
Image-guided ablation represents an alternative approach for patients who cannot undergo surgery or radiation due to the extent of metastatic disease or comorbidities including limited respiratory function, advanced age or prior radiation therapy.
After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Lanuti received his MD degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency in Surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and a two year research fellowship in a Thoracic Oncology Laboratory focusing on novel treatments for lung cancer. He continued with sub-specialty training, and completed a Cardiothoracic Fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He has been on staff in the Division of Thoracic Surgery since 2004, and holds a parallel appointment as Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
