About Duke Cancer Center

 Our doctors are recognized leaders for their roles in developing new drugs, cancer vaccines, and novel approaches to treating cancer and related symptoms through our ongoing clinical trials. We are also part of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation’s leading cancer centers dedicated to improving patient care.

The Duke Cancer Center is a state-of-the-art patient care facility that brings together almost all outpatient services in one convenient location.  Our programs and services include a patient resource center, retail pharmacy, self-image boutique, quiet room, café and outdoor garden. Our goal is to provide you with high-quality care, and an outstanding patient experience.

Cross Department Collaboration

Even the most experienced mesothelioma specialist needs second opinions, making collaboration within a treatment center imperative to get the best possible care.

For example, the mesothelioma team at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa has a weekly thoracic tumor board meeting, where each case is reviewed jointly by the surgeon, radiation oncologist, medical oncologist and nurse specialist. They sit together and provide their own specific expertise on a case.

It’s a multidisciplinary approach that has worked well with mesothelioma patients, providing multiple views of a challenging disease.
