Every cancer, like every patient, is different – and genetic testing can provide valuable information about gene mutations related to certain types of cancers. Understanding more about inherited gene mutations can help your doctor provide better cancer treatment specific to your genomic profile. Our testing services include screening and diagnostic testing and ongoing tests to monitors your condition in addition to genetic testing.
Medical oncology is the treatment of cancer with medicine. There are four major types of treatment for cancer that can be used alone or in combination: chemotherapy, biotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormones. Our physicians coordinate and direct your medical care in collaboration with your referring physician and other specialists.
Hematology is the study of blood in including problems and diseases involving red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, blood vessels, bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, and the proteins involved in bleeding and clotting (hemostasis and thrombosis).
We provide hematology services, including the treatment of coagulation and clotting disorders as well as diseases related to blood and bone marrow.
Our facility offers a range of infusion therapies in a comfortable setting, including chemo-biotherapy, iron infusions, immunotherapy, antibiotics, and hydration therapy.
Our team strives to make your cancer treatment as comfortable as possible. Chemotherapy is used to treat cancer by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells. Non-cancerous cells grow and die in a controlled way. Cancer occurs when abnormal cells divide and multiply rapidly creating more abnormal, or cancerous, cells in the body. There are often side-effects when a patient receives chemotherapy because the treatment also slows the growth of healthy cells. Non-cancerous cells typically repair themselves after chemotherapy.
The type of chemotherapy you receive depends on your type of cancer, where the cancer is located in the body and your overall health. Our cancer care specialists will develop an individualized treatment plan. In many cases, chemotherapy is used in combination with surgery and/or radiation.
Iron is one of the components of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that helps blood carry oxygen throughout the body. If you do not have enough iron, your body cannot make hemoglobin, and you may develop anemia.
Patients who receive iron infusion usually do so because they cannot take oral iron or may need extra iron.
