Mesothelioma Care at The Cleveland Clinic
Cancer care at the Cleveland Clinic is offered at the Taussig Cancer Center. Mesothelioma patients receive care within the Lung Cancer Program. The program treats patients with a multidisciplinary approach using the expertise of medical oncologists, pulmonologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, thoracic surgeons and thoracic radiologists to provide the most favorable treatment options.
The new facility within the Taussig Cancer Center enables physicians to work in specialized teams according to cancer type. The physicians are supported by equally specialized nurses, social workers and other support staff in order to provide well-rounded care for the patient. The center offers a variety of personalized treatment options including chemotherapy, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), extrapleural pneumonectomy, radiation oncology and immunotherapy.
Mesothelioma patients treated at the Cleveland Clinic benefit from their wide network of doctors. The Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center employs more than 400 doctors, researchers and nurses who provide care for the thousands of patients that come through their doors.
