    Chemotherapy is a standard part of cancer care. It uses drugs that slow down and stop cancer cell growth and reproduction.

    These cancer-fighting drugs also target and fight cancer cells that may have spread to other parts of the body. This form of treatment is often used along with other cancer treatments, such as radiation therapy and surgery.

    Hematology is the study of blood in health and disease. It includes problems with your:

    • Red blood cells
    • White blood cells
    • Platelets (part of a blood cell)
    • Blood vessels
    • Bone marrow
    • Lymph nodes
    • Spleen

    Our hematologists (hematology specialists) will: 

    • Work closely with your surgeons, radiation oncologists (cancer care specialists) and other specialists to help you understand your type of cancer
    • Create personal treatment plans just for you 
    • Work with your other providers, so you get everything you need, including surgical, chemotherapeutic and other care

  • Immunotherapy is treatment that uses your body’s own immune system to help fight cancer. The immune system is the part of the body that fights illness. 

    Immunotherapy helps your own immune system work harder or smarter to fight cancer cells. Immunotherapy can work better for some types of cancer than for others. We'll help you find the best treatment plan if you choose to get immunotherapy.

  • Laboratory services and testing are key parts of finding and treating cancer. 

    Our on-site laboratories help us get quick results for many routine tests. This helps us prescribe or change your treatment plan as needed without delays.

    Medical oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

    Our nurses and medical oncologists work closely with oncology-trained pharmacists (medication experts) to: 

    • Take care of how much medicine you’re taking
    • Closely watch your progress and side effects
    • Make sure you’re getting the best treatment plans to fight your specific disease
    OR
  • We combine radiation therapy equipment with the specialized knowledge and care of our providers. 

    This is a method that treats cancer with carefully measured and targeted doses of high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. 

    Radiation can kill some cancer cells right away. Most cancer cells die because the radiation damages the cells and stops their growth.

    The Calypso System is a state-of-the-art imaging system that our cancer care team uses to track real-time movements of tumors during therapy. This kind of radiation therapy helps us more effectively care for different kinds of cancers.
