About Lyudmila A. Bazhenova, MD

Lyudmila A. Bazhenova, MD, is a board-certified medical oncologist. Her clinical practice is devoted to patients with all types of lung cancer, and she has particular expertise with female patients and nonsmokers. She believes in a multidisciplinary approach to lung cancer, and works closely with surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists to provide the best patient experience.

She leads a weekly "lung tumor board," where expert physicians and scientists from several specialties review cases to develop the best possible individualized treatment plan.

Dr. Bazhenova is also an active participant in clinical research, including designing and implementing clinical investigations at Moores Cancer Center. These Phase II studies and correlative science projects often connect her patients with newly approved therapies or treatments available only in clinical trials.

Dr. Bazhenova earned her medical degree from Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Academy in Russia. She is board certified in medical oncology.
