Swedish Medical Center is one of the largest non-profit medical centers in the northwestern United States. Swedish Cancer Institute has been diagnosing, treating and aiding in the recovery of cancer patients since 1932. Swedish Cancer Institute is one of only a handful of facilities that treats pleural mesothelioma in the region.
At the helm of the Lung Cancer Program is thoracic surgeon Dr. Eric Vallieres. Vallieres, along with surgeon Dr. Alexander Farivar have developed a strategy which encompasses a combination of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy. This treatment plan combined with the individualized treatment every patient at Swedish receives has proven to be successful in battling mesothelioma.
