How We Treat Colorectal Cancer
Your case is unique, which means your treatment plan will be designed around your needs. Every week, a team of specialists meets to discuss cancer cases and collaborate on the best treatment for each patient. You benefit from the combined expertise of specialists in radiology, surgery, pathology, pharmacology, oncology and therapists in fields like physical therapy and psychology.
Your recommended treatment will be based on best practices that have worked for other patients, specific aspects of your cancer/tumor, the results of all your tests, the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences.
Colorectal cancer is almost always treated through surgery to remove the tumor. When cancer is caught early, and treatment is begun immediately, surgery can often cure colorectal cancer. If the cancer has spread, radiation and chemotherapy / infusion therapies are used to supplement your treatment plan.
