The Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Clinic will allow lung cancer and mesothelioma patients to participate in an accelerated medical plan to figure out the best course of treatment to fight back against their disease.

Chicago, Illinois (MesotheliomaCancerNews.com) — A new, cutting-edge clinic in Naperville, Illinois is on the brink of science, making cancer treatment a one-stop shop.

The Multidisciplinary Thoracic Oncology Clinic will allow lung cancer and mesothelioma patients to participate in an accelerated medical plan to figure out the best course of treatment to fight back against their disease.

The clinic, opened by Edwards Cancer Center, will give patients the opportunity to see a variety of renowned cancer specialists and go through all necessary testing in one visit. This unique method of cancer treatment can provide a cancer patient with a course of treatment in one day, versus the traditional weeks or months it normally requires to compile a treatment plan.

“The huge benefit to the patient is that we’re able to start treating the cancer in about two weeks,” Dr. Maria Quejada, medical oncologist with Edward Cancer Center stated. “It can take up to a month or longer to begin treatment if a patient has to visit multiple doctors and caregivers in multiple locations.”

According to Asbestos.com, “oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, social workers, clinical trials coordinators and coordinating nurses are available to develop a treatment plan to discuss with the patient on the same day they come to the clinic. New patients are seen by the physicians within a week of referral.”

The clinic specifically treats patients with thoracic cancers, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.

“First and foremost, patients are getting the most advanced and highest quality cancer care available through Edward Cancer Center and the multidisciplinary team,” said Dr. David Cziperle, thoracic surgeon with Edward Hospital and Cardiac Surgery Associates.

Cziperle added that cancer patients “also have peace of mind when they leave with a treatment plan in hand. It’s one less worry during a very stressful time in their lives.”
