St. Joseph Cancer Center’s cancer treatment options are considered some of the most advanced cancer treatment options in the region. Using cutting-edge technology and innovative equipment, St. Joseph Cancer Center’s team of surgeons, physicians, oncologists, and radiologists treat all types of cancer from A-Z, including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
Cancer treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. In some cases, St. Joseph Cancer Center patients receive more than one type of treatment. While Cancer Center specialists develop treatment plans to fit each individual’s specific case, because combined treatments offer the best chance at survival, patients may receive a combination of all three treatments. Keep in mind that the main methods used to treat cancer are surgery, chemotherapy, and various forms of radiation therapy.
St. Joseph Cancer Center features an Oncology Clinical Intervention Specialist (OCIS) that serves as educational and emotional support for Cancer Center patients and their loved ones. The Oncology Clinical Intervention Specialist also provides patients with the latest information on cancer treatments, and research opportunities, and the OCIS also acts as a facilitator of doctor recommendations for patient care.
