A national leader in the early detection of lung cancer, particularly in high-risk individuals, Roswell Park’s Lung Cancer Screening Program is committed to providing clear, evidence-based guidance to patients. 

Groundbreaking research by our doctors and scientists has led to a greater understanding of lung cancer and to major advances in early detection, diagnosis and treatment, and the potential for a future cancer vaccine.

Our Endoscopy Center brings together Advanced Endoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology services into one facility where more than 90 percent of procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
