Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Center Institute Cancer Registry 2016 Annual Report
Today’s cancer treatment has changed radically. New advances in chemotherapy, radiation oncology and surgery, including minimally invasive approaches to both biopsies and surgery, have altered the landscape of cancer treatment. Clinical research and trials have helped inform oncologists, doctors who specialize in cancer treatment, of better methods to treat and fight cancer.
At the DeCesaris Cancer Institute, our oncologists use evidence-based medicine—medicine based on research—to treat cancer and focus on the patient. This advanced care is close to home and offers you the option of clinical trials and supportive care programs, like nurse navigators, genetic counseling and nutrition services.
