About The Doctor

Prashant Shah

Thoracic Surgery

Dr. Prashant C Shah first stepped into what was usually a scientifically rigid surgery world, but Dr. Shah, M.D., took on a special approach when it came to patient care. In fact, he gave an equal amount of attention to the emotional and medical care aspect of the support. In 2016, Dr. Shah became a part of the Baylor Scott & White Health network. Dr. Shah did things a little differently in comparison because of how he brought in a more multidisciplinary approach to treating people with malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Helping Patients to Fully Understand

One of the most significant aims of Dr. Prashant Shah’s work is to help his patients fully understand their disease. They must know their options. When someone has been diagnosed with cancer, it can be an emotionally challenging and life-altering experience. Dr. Shah is there for his patients every step of the way.

Message of Hope

This is not a doctor who believes in talking about doom and gloom.

The Key Goal

Dr. Shah has talked about how his first and foremost goal has always been to help patients and family members know the different options available to them. He also wants them to see that they’re not alone because this can be a period of extraordinary emotional upheaval. Dr. Shah has stressed how seeing a specialist in mesothelioma can be life-changing. Baylor Scott & White Health Network is an expert in the care of mesothelioma, and receives additional assistance and expertise from Baylor University Medical Center.

Leaving Behind the Doom and Gloom

This is not a doctor who believes in talking about doom and gloom. Instead, Dr. Shah brings a message of hope, which at one point, was completely lacking in the discussion of asbestos-related disease.

Dr. Shah has said that while we do not move mountains, we do make steady progress, and today, there is hope in optimizing prognosis for those who have mesothelioma. There is still a long way to go, but we have made progress.
