The Mesothelioma and Pleural Program is a unique system that consists of a team of dedicated specialists with a passion and expertise for treating patients with mesothelioma. The Mesothelioma and Pleural Program offers every treatment option available worldwide and a number of treatments only obtainable at the Harron Lung Center. The program has one goal: to provide you with comprehensive and compassionate care at the highest level possible, both now and in the future.
Mesothelioma Patients Benefit From a Team Approach
The team of physicians who treat mesothelioma and pleural disease are among the best in the world. Their specialties cover thoracic surgery, pulmonary medicine, endocrine and oncologic surgery, hematology/oncology, pathology, psychiatry, radiology and radiation oncology.
In addition, a patient navigator assists you with any questions and helps to schedule your appointments with the mesothelioma team.
A key aspect of the Mesothelioma and Pleural Program is the weekly meeting of the group of specialists who review each case in detail. Following an in-depth discussion of each individual case, your team will develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at optimal results.
Promising Results in Clinical Trials for Mesothelioma
Another important component of the Mesothelioma and Pleural Program is the easy access to clinical trials focusing on mesothelioma treatment. In some cases, Penn is the first and only place in the world to offer certain clinical trials to mesothelioma patients. The use of clinical trials underscores the ultimate goal of our program, which is to offer you the best possible care currently available and to develop the best possible care of the future for mesothelioma patients.
