Medical Oncology 

 

Diagnosis & Treatment of Cancer

Chemotherapy infusion​ is the use of powerful drugs to kill cancer cells. These drugs enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body, killing cancer cells in the tumor but also targeting cancer cells that may have spread to other parts of the body.
 
 
Not every patient will require chemotherapy treatment. Patients that do require chemotherapy treatment will meet with one of our board-certified medical oncologists. These doctors are experts in the use of chemotherapy and use their knowledge to determine which medications will be most effective in treating specific cancers.
 
 

Our medical oncology department offers:

 
  • Blood transfusions
  • Oncology-certified nursing staff
  • Oncology for the treatment of cancer
  • Hematology and blood disorder services
  • Chemotherapy administration and management
  • Nine infusion chairs within the Infusion Center
  • IV antibiotics administration, PICC line placements and portacath management for the administration of medications
  • Care of central lines
  • Personalized treatment plan
Medical oncologists develop a plan of care for chemotherapy patients that identifies how long the patient will be treated, how they will receive the treatments (by mouth, injection or other means) and how often they’ll be treated. They will also discuss the benefits of the outlined treatment and potential risks or side effects.
