Chemotherapy and Infusion Therapies

NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital's Cancer Care program offers a full range of advanced treatments for cancer and each treatment plan is based on the unique needs and choices of the patient. Frequently, a main component of cancer treatment, chemotherapy, is the use of drugs given by mouth or injection to destroy cells that pose a danger to the body. Chemotherapy can also be useful in treating blood and immune system disorders.

At NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, chemotherapy treatment is generally administered on an outpatient basis at the Ambulatory Infusion Center. When a patient needs to receive chemotherapy as an inpatient at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, he or she stays on the dedicated oncology unit.

All chemotherapy is given under the supervision of a physician specializing in medical oncology with carefully developed protocols for pharmacy and drug administration. NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital frequently participates in clinical trials for new treatments, giving patients access to the latest information in chemotherapy research.
