A Team Approach to Fighting Mesothelioma
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), people fighting mesothelioma have an entire team of cancer experts focused on fighting the disease and helping them live a better quality of life as they go through treatment.
Our highly trained and experienced doctors utilize sophisticated tools and technology to treat mesothelioma, including TomoTherapy® and Trilogy™. These cutting-edge radiation therapy delivery systems target small, difficult-to-reach tumors, protecting healthy surrounding tissue and minimizing radiation side effects. We also offer Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) for peritoneal mesothelioma. With HIPEC, we deliver a heated chemotherapy solution directly to the abdomen. The chemotherapy penetrates and destroys undetectable cancer cells that remain in the abdomen after surgery to remove the disease.
In addition to the oncologists, pulmonologists and other types of doctors our mesothelioma patients work with, their care teams include a naturopathic oncology provider and clinical oncology dietitian. These care providers help patients stay strong and prevent or minimize common side effects of mesothelioma treatment.
