Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that few doctors specialize in treating. Most cases develop in the lining of the lungs – known as pleural mesothelioma – and this has become a special interest for Vallieres.

One of the surgeries he is qualified to perform is an extrapleural pneumonectomy, which is used for pleural mesothelioma patients.
