Minnesota Oncology thoracic surgeon Dr. Louis Jacques was featured in and article published this week in U.S. News and World Report's on on the topic of what patients should know about lung surgery. The article includes commentary from Dr. Jacques on what to look for when choosing a surgeon as well as his advice on what kind of surgeon would be best qualified.

"'When choosing a surgeon for lung cancer surgery, your best bet is a surgeon whose practice is devoted specifically to lung operations', says Dr. Louis Jacques, a lung cancer surgeon with Minnesota Oncology, a practice in the US Oncology Network...

Having done a higher volume of lung procedures is a significant advantage, Jacques says. Also, he says, lung-focused surgeons tend to work within a well-established group involving medical oncologists, nursing coordinators, radiation therapists and pathologists, all collaborating on decisions and treatments as a multidisciplinary team."
