OUR APPROACH TO CARE

Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Cancer Care for the Whole Body & Mind

We use a multidisciplinary approach to care, which means we bring together clinicians from different specialties and departments to ensure that patients are receiving care for their whole body and mind, not just their cancer. Our patients have access to the latest anti-cancer drugs, novel and targeted therapies and emerging minimally invasive surgical procedures. We also have numerous support programs to help manage the emotional and physical challenges of cancer.  

As part of a comprehensive academic medical center, not only do we offer the full range of cancer care — from screening to treatment surveillance and recovery— but also treatment for other conditions that may develop as a result of cancer or a pre-existing condition.  If needed, we have outstanding related services throughout the medical center including endocrinology, digestive, transplant, cardiovascular and pathology.

As part of your cancer treatment, you may have the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial. Clinical trials are studies of new treatment and diagnostic approaches in patients. Every advance that has been achieved in medicine and has improved the lives of patients has come about as the result of clinical trials.
