If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or are at high risk for the disease, rest assured that as a Roswell Park patient, your care will be comprehensive, tailored to your individual needs and preferences, and delivered with compassion and respect. As a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma, our team of specialists provides personalized patient care as well as second opinions and consults.

Roswell Park offers several innovative treatments that are not widely available in this region, including photodynamic therapy (pioneered at Roswell Park), hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemoperfusion, and intrapleural heated chemotherapy. Roswell Park is also a national leader in lung-sparing surgery.

Our physicians and researchers play leadership roles in developing the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines that specify the best ways of preventing, detecting and treating specific types of cancer. The NCCN Guidelines for Mesothelioma are the most widely used standards in the United States and abroad.

Groundbreaking research by our doctors and scientists has led to major advances in early detection, diagnosis and treatment. We also pioneered cancer screening approaches and minimally invasive surgical techniques, and continue to develop and test the newest drugs in clinical research studies.

Our Endoscopy Center brings together Advanced Endoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology services into one facility where more than 90 percent of procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.

Pioneering Clinical Trials

Roswell Park strives to find better ways to treat mesothelioma through clinical trials, many of which have been pioneered and launched by our own translational research team.
