Find a Cancer Center Treatment
Mesothelioma treatments require specialized medical care and attention. Fortunately there are several top-notch treatment facilities around the United States. At the same time, thoracic surgeons (doctors who operate on the chest cavity and organs such as the heart, lungs, esophagus, and trachea) are rare. There are several organizations and news outlets that have ranked the best cancer centers in the country.
The Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts is the home base of the world renown International Mesothelioma Program. They are leaders in the fields of research and clinical trials regarding mesothelioma, and have partnered with nearby Harvard University for their research and treatment programs. The IMP treats almost 200 mesothelioma patients per year, and provides more than 300 consultations. The hospital itself has been ranked for a quarter of a century by US News and World Report on its Honor Roll of America’s Best Hospitals.
