Oakland, CA Mesothelioma Lawyers

Oakland, California - named for the oak trees found in the area- is located along the central coast of California on the east side of San Francisco Bay. Oakland, along with the rest of the state of California, was purchased by the United States in the late 1800s. It quickly became a major railroad terminal and busy port. This infrastructure made Oakland a leader in the nation's shipbuilding industry after World War I. By the 1920's Oakland had become home to manufacturers of automobiles, shipbuilding, metals and canneries along with other industries related to the war.

Today, Oakland's remains an important shipping port as well as home to many industries, including transportation, food processing, technology, and pharmaceuticals among others.

The shipbuilding and industrial history of Oakland includes many occupations and high risk job sites where asbestos products were widely used.

As with asbestosis, mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos.

Dr. Baumgartner has specific expertise and interest in treating tumors that have metastasized to the abdomen, using a promising treatment known as the “chemo bath" or hyperthermic (heated) intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). This treatment involves surgical resection of all tumors followed by circulation of heated chemotherapy throughout the abdomen. This technique avoids many of the toxicities associated with systemic chemotherapy, while exposing the abdomen to higher concentrations of chemotherapy. Dr. Baumgartner spent two years working and training at one of highest volume HIPEC centers in the world at the University of Pittsburgh and therefore has significant experience with this procedure.
Dr. Baumgartner completed a surgical oncology fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine with a focus on clinical research, which included additional training in the development and conduct of clinical trials. He completed a residency at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from Indiana University School of Medicine in Bloomington, Ind.
