We are lucky to live in a time when there are more cancer treatment options than ever before, yet deciding on a course of care can still be a daunting experience.
Your expert team will recommend the right leading-edge treatment option for your unique situation, whether surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation oncology. As part of our comprehensive support program, specialized nurse navigators work with every patient and their family to assist in this sometimes difficult process of choosing the right treatment.
We are also proud to host our Tumor Board, which brings together the brightest minds in cancer from inside and outside of Huntington’s walls. Our Tumor Board reviews select cases.
There are several methods of treatment for cancer, including radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Learn more about each below.
Expert Review Through Tumor Boards
Huntington Hospital cancer physicians participate in Tumor Boards, a treatment planning approach in which a group of doctors with expertise in different specialties review and discuss a patient’s medical condition and treatment options. The multidisciplinary, multi-institutional group will collectively design the best course of action for individuals according to the most up-to-date evidence-based guidelines. Select cases are brought to Tumor Boards.
