An Integrated Team Customized to Your Needs
Our Weill Cornell physicians are recognized leaders in cancer care and research, and are experienced managing even the most complex cases. We put together the team of cancer care professionals you need to achieve the best outcome, drawing from our esteemed roster of cancer surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, oncology nurses and nurse practitioners, social workers, nutritionists, and others with experience and compassion to provide total care for people with cancer. As a major medical center, we can also link you with NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital physicians who treat other health problems, all right here in Brooklyn.
OUR APPROACH TO CARE
Full-Service Cancer Care for the Whole Body & Mind
We use a multidisciplinary approach to care, bringing together doctors from different specialties and departments to ensure our patients receive care for the whole body and mind, not just the cancer. Our patients have access to the latest anti-cancer drugs, targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and minimally invasive surgical procedures.
Not only do we offer the full range of cancer care — from screening and diagnosis to treatment and recovery — but also care for other conditions that may develop as a result of cancer or a pre-existing condition. If needed, you'll have access to other outstanding services throughout our hospital, including endocrinology, digestive, neurological, and cardiovascular care.
As part of your cancer treatment, you may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial. Clinical trials are studies of new treatments and diagnostic approaches in patients. Virtually every advance achieved in medicine that has improved the lives of patients has come about as the result of clinical trials.
