Leading Medical Centers for Mesothelioma Treatment

by Steve Holder on December 15, 2008

Even though 2,000 to 3,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed every year, it is still such a rare form of cancer that few medical centers specialize in mesothelioma treatment.  Many major hospitals with sophisticated oncology programs, however, have thoracic oncology departments with doctors who specialize in several forms of chest-related cancers including mesothelioma.

Among the most pre-eminent cancer treatment facilities in the United States are those designated as cancer centers by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Selected for excellence in their research and treatment programs, these centers receive research funding from the U.S. government.  The results of their research are then shared between all of the NCI centers, as well as the medical community at large.  At these centers you should be assured of being cared for by a team of specialists who have access to the most up-to-date information on mesothelioma treatment.

The following list includes facilities of the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health as well as NCI-designated cancer centers.
