    In eligible patients, we perform advanced (genomic) testing to check for specific changes in cancer cell genes. The team uses this information to determine the treatments that are appropriate for your diagnosis.
  • Clinical trials:
    An active role in cancer research gives eligible patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials testing the next generation of treatments, if you qualify. Find out more about cancer clinical trials and research.
  • Support:

Available Treatments for Cancer

Cancer care at Nuvance Health may include:

Cancer surgery

You receive care from experienced surgeons, many of whom completed additional training through fellowships in surgical oncology and other specialties. For patients who qualify, we use minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques that remove cancer through small incisions. Find out more about cancer surgery.

Chemotherapy and other medical oncology

Medical oncology treatments use medications to slow or prevent cancer cell growth. We offer newly approved chemotherapy drugs, which give many patients additional care options. You receive the careful attention and support of specially trained nurses before, during, and after treatment.

Other medical oncology options include immunotherapy for cancers that do not respond to standard treatments. You receive drugs that work with your immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells. We also offer isolated limb infusion, which delivers chemotherapy directly to cancers in the arms and legs. This treatment is only available at a handful of cancer centers nationwide.  Learn more about chemotherapy and other medical oncology.

Radiation therapy

Radiation therapy uses beams of intense energy and other techniques to shrink cancerous growths (tumors). We offer sophisticated options, such as hypofractionation for eligible patients. This treatment typically helps patients complete treatment in less time. Nuvance Health’s experienced radiology team takes time to plan your care, so you get more out of each treatment.
