The depth and breadth of our cancer network provides the services you need for top care.
Chemotherapy is considered a systemic treatment because the medicine travels into the entire body to kill cancer cells. Depending on your situation, chemotherapy is used to eliminate cancer, support other treatments, minimize cancer, and for palliative treatment.
Hormone therapy lowers hormone levels or stops them from acting on breast cancer cells. Also called endocrine therapy, this approach is often used in conjunction with other treatments primarily for breast cancer treatment.
As a painless procedure that uses high-energy particles or rays (like a more intense X-ray), radiation therapy kills cancerous cells. It is delivered by our radiation oncologists — specialists who form a key part of our team and have spent years in the field of breast health.
Two skin cancer procedures include sentinel lymph node biopsies (which determines whether cancer has spread to the lymph nodes) and lymph node dissections (the surgical removal of cancerous lymph nodes).
Cancer rehabilitation is designed to maximize your ability to gain endurance and mobility, and improve activities of daily living. In addition, highly skilled Rehabilitation specialists will empower you to gain independence and maximize the quality of your post- cancer life.
