Once a cancer diagnosis has been confirmed, our cancer team confers to plan the best course of treatment for the patient. This team includes pathologists, surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. Our physicians follow the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) for diagnosis, staging and treatment. Treatment may involve surgery, chemotherapy or radiation, or a combination of these approaches.
Surgery is an integral component of the treatment plan for many cancer patients. Surgical oncology focuses on the surgical removal of tumors, including cancerous ones.
In collaboration with surgery, pathology and radiation oncology, our medical oncology & hematology department provides initial diagnosis, planning and treatment, and post-treatment follow-up of patients with cancers or blood disorders. Our infusion service, led by board-certified medical oncologists and certified chemotherapeutic nurses and staff, administers treatment and other supportive services.
Our radiation oncology facility provides patients with technology to treat their disease and offers patients convenient access with parking directly in front of the facility with a ground floor entrance.
The linear accelerator tracks and destroys cancer cells with pinpoint precision. With our sophisticated onboard treatment planning system, we can provide 3D conformal, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) to target cancer tissue with tightly focused 3D radiation beams. Aiming a precise dose of radiation to the shape and depth of the tumor avoids damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
We offer a variety of resources and support services as part of your customized treatment plan.
