Cancer treatment we provide
When you come to us for oncology services, you will have access to a full range of services for preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. Treatment options you may receive include:
Chemotherapy—This kills fast-growing cancer cells in your body through drug treatment. Chemotherapy can be used before or after cancer removal surgery to shrink a tumor or kill remaining cancer cells.
Surgical oncology—To remove a cancerous tumor, your doctor may recommend a surgical approach. Depending on the procedure, this can either be inpatient or outpatient.
Radiation therapy—This noninvasive treatment uses beams of radiation to target specific areas in your body to stop the spread of cancer cells. Radiation therapy works by damaging the genetic material in cells that is responsible for cancer growth.
We know receiving a cancer diagnosis is never easy. We are here to walk with you and offer compassionate treatment services and ongoing support. Some of the resources we offer include:
