Learn More about this Cancer Center

The Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center houses experts in both lung and peritoneal cancers, giving them the capability to treat different forms of mesothelioma cancer. Their team implements advanced diagnostic and treatment methods to provide patients with options for treating their cancer. Specialists at the center use a new minimally invasive biopsy option known as electromagnet navigation bronchoscopy, which is guided by the computer and allows for multiple samples to be taken at once for better analysis.

Their peritoneal cancer care involves leading treatments in surgical cytoreduction (CRS) and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), which work together to improve the quality and length of a patient’s life. The treatment works by removing the visible sites of cancer surgically, combined with instilling heated chemotherapy throughout the abdominal cavity. Their lung cancer treatment center utilizes advanced treatment options such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) to deliver high-quality treatment for patients with lung conditions, including pleural mesothelioma.

Clinical trials are also available to patients who are eligible, providing more options for advanced treatment options. Palliative care and personal care are provided to patients at Nebraska Medicine to help them manage symptoms and hardships associated with their cancer diagnosis. Patients can also seek support groups, nutrition help, financial counseling and other support services through the center.
