Mesothelioma Treatment Goals
Mesothelioma is an aggressive asbestos-related malignancy that originates from the cells (mesothelial cells) that compose the thin tissue (serosa) that lines the walls and organs of the lungs and abdomen.
Although mesothelioma typically has a dire prognosis, physicians and researchers at the Mesothelioma Treatment Center are coming up with increasingly sophisticated ways to diagnose and treat this disease.
Treatment at the Mesothelioma Treatment Center is often multimodal and typically involves surgery to remove any tumor visible to the naked eye in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiation and/or immunotherapy. Members of our team have refined surgical techniques and incorporated new treatment modalities to improve outcomes for mesothelioma patients.
We also offers a unique patient and family-oriented support system that ensures that patients are active participants in their treatment and that the whole family is provided with emotional support throughout the treatment course.
Personalized Genetic and Immune Based Therapies
When you are evaluated at the Mesothelioma Treatment Center, tissues from your tumor and blood will be analyzed for the expression of distinct genes and immune markers to comprehensively evaluate what specific therapies would work better in your case.
Our panel of markers and clinical trials is expanding at a steady pace and will provide you with access to the most advanced treatment options available.
