Compassionate Cancer Care

At Regional One Health, we understand that a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event – so we’re changing the way cancer care is delivered for patients and families alike. By assembling multidisciplinary specialists, evidence-based medical treatments, and robust clinical research, we are elevating cancer care for patients throughout the Mid-South.

Contact Us

Our team approach is based on the proven model of providing comprehensive care for every patient, every time. We deliver on this promise by uniting surgical, medical and radiation oncologists; radiologists; nutritionists; nurse navigators; and genetic counselors in every patient’s care. Treatment begins with our nationally-recognized experts convening multidisciplinary conferences to review your diagnosis, stage and treatment. These conferences, also called tumor boards, bring together cancer experts and specialists from multiple disciplines to share knowledge, ideas and treatments to give you the right care at the right time. This powerful tool promotes innovation and ensures no stone is left unturned in developing the best treatment plan.

Treatment is then delivered by physicians and cancer specialist nurses who share a commitment to patient-focused medicine and providing the best care for patients and families. We put all the services and expertise you need in one place, helping you navigate this challenging time in a comfortable, trusting environment so you can live the life you love before, during and after your treatment. We support you and your family through every step of your journey.

Our Services

The cornerstone of our practice is our exceptional team of fellowship trained, board-certified medical oncologists and surgical oncologists. Medical oncologists use drug-based therapies to inhibit the growth and spread of cancer, while surgical oncologists perform procedures to remove cancerous tumors and surrounding tissue. For some patients, the optimal care plan incorporates both drug therapies and surgery, as well as radiation, genetic testing and more. We bring all of the resources you need under one roof to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Our providers take the time to explain your treatment options and let you know what to expect. We believe you are the most important member of your care team, so we aim to empower you and your loved ones to understand your treatment and take control of your wellbeing.

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, quicker discharge, less scarring and a shorter and smoother 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.
