Dedicated Multidisciplinary Treatment Team
The division of medical oncology provides medical treatments which include chemotherapy, targeted molecular therapy, immunotherapy and supportive and palliative care. The Markey Cancer Center's dedicated multidisciplinary treatment team includes physicians from all subspecialties, nurses, pharmacists, and researchers who collaborate to provide coordinated care for all patients. Beginning with the initial diagnosis through survivorship, the team is prepared to give the best care possible, placing the patient’s medical and emotional needs first.
Latest Advances in Surgical, Radiation, and Chemotherapeutic Intervention
Patients are seen in a supportive environment where they are offered the latest advances in surgical, radiation, and chemotherapeutic intervention. Along with superior existing treatment options, patients are also given the opportunity to participate in clinical trials carried out by our physicians and researchers. Through these trials we discover new and improved options for treating cancer.
