Learn More about this Cancer Center

The Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital treats patients with mesothelioma cancer, serving as the only cancer center in Missouri. Their team includes specialized surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists who work together to treat lung and chest conditions with cutting-edge treatments.

Siteman Cancer Center takes a multimodal approach to treatment, implementing surgery, chemotherapy and other treatment options, depending on the patient’s response to other methods. They aim to salvage healthy parts of the lung, and only remove the lung when absolutely necessary in order to preserve normal lung function. The center also specializes in video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, which is designed to reduce risk of infection by creating small incisions in the chest. Chemotherapy, immunotherapy and radiation therapy are also utilized alongside surgery to improve quality of life for patients.

The center has clinical trials available to patients who may be fit for the study, giving them options for alternative and emerging treatment methods. The program receives more than $150 million annually to fund cancer research studies and clinical trials, which are in collaboration with other cancer centers in the St. Louis area. Patients also have access to discounted lodging for their loved ones, as well as social work services, emotional support and billing and financial assistance to help ease the burden of cancer treatment.
