Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the USA. We review the epidemiology of lung cancer, the multimodality treatment, and the surgical treatment of this disease. In the section covering the surgical treatment of lung cancer, we will discuss open lobectomy, video-assisted lobectomy, and the new approach of robot-assisted lobectomy for treatment of lung cancer.
