Surgery for mesothelioma

Your care team includes clinicians from multiple disciplines who will support you on many levels before, during and after mesothelioma surgery.

  • Prior to surgery, your care team will explain what you can expect, answer your questions and help you feel comfortable with the upcoming procedure.
  • During surgery, our pathologists can evaluate tissue samples as they are removed and provide pathology results immediately. This helps your surgical oncology team remove as much cancerous tissue as possible during surgery, reducing the likelihood that you will have to undergo multiple surgeries.
  • After surgery, your pain management practitioner may recommend various options to help control any pain, and our dietitians and naturopathic clinicians may suggest diet and supplement recommendations to help you stay nourished.
