Breathe Easier with Care and Support
Virtua’s Lung Wellness Program offers comprehensive services, care and support for patients with lung cancer and those at risk for developing it. The program provides the necessary support to help people improve the health of their lungs.
Services include:High-risk lung cancer screening
In early stages, lung cancer doesn’t present with obvious symptoms. By screening high-risk groups of current and former smokers, lung cancer can be detected at an earlier and more treatable stage.Integrative medicine: acupuncture
Acupuncture offers a holistic approach to quit smoking. It stimulates the release of chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. This flow of natural chemicals promotes healing, improves well-being, relieves pain and helps curb the desire to smoke.Pulmonary fitness
