We're here to meet our patients where they are and journey with them.
A team of more than 30 medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists and pathologists – all experts in their fields and mesothelioma – work together closely to customize the best treatment for you. A specially trained support team is part of each group.
MD Anderson's researchers are pioneering remarkable advances to give you the best chance for fighting mesothelioma. Areas of study include:
- More-precise ways to diagnose mesothelioma
- Targeted radiation therapy that focuses on cancer cells, while causing the least damage to healthy cells
- Novel targeted agents that help your body fight the disease
We constantly test new boundaries with research. Because of this, we can offer many clinical trials (research studies) of new treatments that are not available at other centers. In fact, the dedicated mesothelioma research program at MD Anderson is one of the few in the world.
And, at MD Anderson you're surrounded by the strength of one of the nation's foremost comprehensive cancer centers. We have all the support and wellness services needed to treat the whole person – not just the disease.
Understanding a disease is the first step toward finding the right care. Get the facts about mesothelioma, including the different types, how it starts and who’s at risk.
