I think MD XXXXXXX Cancer center, Houston, XXXXXXX is the best in the business. Prof XXXXXXX Cox specialises in radiation for lung cancer there.

Other worthy centers are...

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York (Dr XXXXXXX Gewanter).

Johns XXXXXXX Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston.

Mayo Clinic, Rochester.

UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles.

University of Chicago Hospitals, Chicago.

Stanford University Hospital, Stanford, California.

Duke University Medical Center, Durham.

University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, Washington.

Smilow Cancer Center, New XXXXXXX CT.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York.
