WTOP’s Neal Augenstein recovering after lung cancer surgery

by | Apr 18, 2023

When WTOP’s Neal Augenstein shared his cancer diagnosis in late 2022 and the well wishes and prayers began flowing in.  On April 18, 2023, Augenstein, a non-smoker, shared the news that “it’s hard for me to believe that on Friday, I had the upper lobe of my cancerous left lung removed, went home the next day, and am back to work, Tuesday. It shows what medical device and biopharmaceutical innovation can do for stage 4 cancer patients, in the hands of a wonderful treatment team.

“On Friday, I had a robot-assisted lobectomy, with lymph nodes removed from the center of my chest. Three days later, I barely need over-the-counter pain medication.”

“I’ve said it before,” adds Augenstein,  “nobody wants to get lung cancer, but it happens to lots of us. But, with the recent developments and ongoing trials and research in medicine, technology and treatment strategies, it’s really redefining what’s possible for people with stage 4 lung cancer.”
