Mesothelioma Surgery

Mesothelioma surgery is one of the most effective treatments for this type of cancer. Extrapleural pneumonectomy and pleurectomy decortication surgeries are used to treat pleural mesothelioma, while cytoreductive surgery is often used for peritoneal mesothelioma. Surgery can slow the progression of the cancer, extend life expectancy, and provide relief from symptoms for palliative care.[1]
