Learn More about this Cancer Center

Thoracic oncology specialists at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute at Wayne State University offers multidisciplinary treatment for mesothelioma patients. Their team works to provide customized treatment to patients based on their individual needs.

The institute goes beyond their collaborative team of oncologists, surgeons, radiologists and pathologists and also devotes time to research processes for early detection of precancerous cells to provide mesothelioma and lung cancer diagnoses in their early stages. They also study new and advanced treatment options for mesothelioma and cancers of the chest. The thoracic oncology team specializes in different forms of radiation therapy, including intensive modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy and gamma knife radiation for metastatic cancers. The department also frequently leads clinical trials and collaborates with others in the center’s Phase I Clinical Trials Program. This gives patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and work with the team to identify the best method of treatment.

Supportive oncology is also offered at the institute, providing symptom control, pain management and other alternative treatment needs in order to improve the quality of life for patients during their treatment.
