Cancer Care

Cancer Care

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in both men and women. Screenings can lead to early detection. When cancer is discovered in its earliest stages, treatment can be most effective. Our team of specialists are highly skilled and dedicated to providing quality care with state-of-the-art equipment.

 

Types of cancer treated:

  • Breast cancers
  • Male and female reproductive system cancers – cervical, endometrial, ovarian, prostate, testicular, uterine and vaginal
  • Hepatobiliary cancers – malignant tumors of the liver, pancreas, bile ducts and gallbladder
  • Gastrointestinal cancers – tumors of the GI tract, colon, duodenal, esophagus and stomach
  • Head and neck cancers
  • Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas
  • Leukemia
  • Lung cancers
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Neurological cancers
  • Sarcomas
  • Skin cancers
  • Urinary tract cancers – bladder, kidney and ureteral

 

Once a diagnosis has been determined, our team works closely with the patient to establish a personalized plan of treatment depending on the stage of the cancer.

In addition, we provide comprehensive treatment coordination for all cancers.

*Services vary by location.
