Learn More about this Cancer Center

The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to treating mesothelioma cancer, providing renowned detection technology and treatment options to patients.

Their robotic video-assisted surgery program is among the top 10 in the southeastern United States, decreasing blood loss and hospital stay time. With this technology, the center has also found improved life expectancies for patients. As a first-line treatment for early-stage patients, specialists at the cancer center often perform surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible, but chemotherapy and advanced radiation therapy are also utilized options for patients. The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center offers advanced radiation oncology tools, including MRI-guided radiation therapy. Specialists often treat patients with intensity-modulated external radiation therapy, which allows for shorter treatment times, more targeted treatment and less damage to the healthy tissue around the treated area.

Clinical trials are offered to patients who are eligible, providing further options for treatment. A wide array of support options for patients and families are also available through the cancer center, including support groups, caregiver support and palliative care.
