A Team Approach
Our multi-disciplinary teams tackle the more complex cases and provide personalized care. The teams are comprised of physicians with related specialties and support personnel who meet regularly. We cover breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, genitourinary (including prostate) cancer, gynecologic cancers, head and neck cancer, neuro-oncology, skin and melanoma and thoracic (lung) cancer.
The Latest Technology
The centerpiece of our technological cancer-fighting arsenal is the CyberKnife, a robotic system that is so accurate it can deliver higher doses of radiation that can result in fewer treatments for the patient. The CyberKnife complements our stable of TrueBeam radiotherapy system for traditional radtiation treatments.
The LCRP also has the latest imaging technology as well as mole mapping technology to track changes to your skin that could signify skin cancer or melanoma.
One of the main goals of the National Cancer Institute's Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) is to expand clinical trials and offer patient access to the latest trials available. The Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion (LCRP) now has greater access to clinical trials, expanded the number of clinical trials available to patients, started participating in early phase clinical trials and increased focus on minority and underserved population participation in clinical trials.
