Treatment

Comprehensive Cancer Treatment

Years of study and research have provided effective strategies to combat cancer. As tests and trials have advanced, they have led to more effective, tightly targeted treatments. Today’s patients often have a range of proven treatment options — and the list is ever-growing.

Chemotherapy

Powerful chemotherapy drugs are used to stop or slow cancer growth. You can often receive chemo in an outpatient setting or physician’s office.

Surgery

Surgeons can operate to remove some cancer or tumors. Surgery isn’t always drastic. In some cases, minimally invasive surgeries are be the most effective option.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is used alone or with surgery. Treatments are highly targeted to minimize side effects and limit damage to healthy tissue.

Lymphedema Clinic

This clinic specializes in treatment and control of lymphedema, a swelling in the arms or legs caused by disruption within the lymphatic system.

Managing Side Effects

Side effects were once an accepted part of therapy. Today there are strategies that can reduce their impact and, in some cases, even prevent them from happening.
