Medical Oncology

Our world-renowned medical oncologists explore all options for effective cancer care, using one or a combination of medical therapies to address each patient’s individual diagnosis.

  • Chemotherapy: Our team selects the optimal oral or IV chemotherapy option based on your stage and type of cancer, underlying conditions, overall health and other factors.
  • Targeted Therapy: When we can identify the mutation causing your cancer, targeted therapy can be used to attack the mutation while minimizing damage to healthy cells.
  • Immunotherapy: For cancers including lung cancer and lymphoma, immunotherapy can help a patient’s own immune system identify and target cancer cells.
  • Molecular Testing: When indicated, your cancer specimen can undergo advanced gene testing to identify the best possible individualized therapy.
  • Research: Our clinical trial system can give patients access to the newest, most promising treatment options being studied in a research setting.

Surgical Oncology

Our surgical oncologists are leaders in performing advanced procedures that not only address a patient’s cancer diagnosis but protect and enhance their quality of life.

Robotic Surgery

Robotic-assisted surgery with our state-of-the-art Da Vinci XI system is a minimally invasive approach that gives physicians enhanced operating capabilities including three-dimensional views, exceptional instrument control, and expanded range of motion. This allows our surgeons to perform extremely precise, targeted procedures that offer optimal clinical outcomes.

Robotic-assisted surgery also helps us protect our patients’ quality of life as they undergo their cancer treatment. Because procedures performed using the Da Vinci XI system require just a few small incisions, they carry less risk of infection and blood loss, significantly less pain, more same-day procedures and shorter hospital stays, less scarring and an easier recovery.

Our skilled surgeons can perform robotic procedures for a variety of cancer diagnoses, including colorectal, liver, stomach, gynecological, head and neck, thoracic and urologic cancers.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally invasive surgery uses ports placed through small incisions to perform precise, targeted surgery for a number of procedures to offer optimal clinical outcomes. Many patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery benefit from shorter hospital stays, less pain, quicker recovery and smaller incisions. We use different tools, cameras and ports to personalize each surgery for each patient based on their specific needs.

Traditional Surgery

Sometimes, patients benefit from traditional surgical approaches to address their cancer. As a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, we are among the most highly-selected institutions worldwide in establishing the standard of care for cancer patients. It is our privilege to care for you and your family with the most advanced resources available.

Additional Expertise

Regional One Health offers comprehensive services that allow us to treat the whole person, not just the cancer diagnosis.
