MULTIDISCIPLINARY CARE FOR HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
At Carilion Clinic, we are committed to providing collaborative, coordinated cancer care. Our team of multidisciplinary experts specialize in the treatment of breast cancer, gastrointestinal oncology, gynecologic oncology, head and neck oncology, pediatric oncology, and thoracic oncology. We understand the anxiety you may feel upon learning that you or a family member may have cancer, so we'll do our best to schedule your appointment as quickly as possible, so you won't have to wait unnecessarily for answers or treatment.
Our cancer treatment program, in collaboration with the physicians of Blue Ridge Cancer Care, provides the full range of cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation, on both an in-patient and out-patient basis. We offer IGRT, Image-Guided Radiation Therapy, which combines a new form of imaging technology that allows precise targeting of the tumor with the control of IMRT to pinpoint and treat cancerous tumors with varying amounts of radiation.
With our emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach to care, every patient benefits from the collaborative expertise of an experienced team of specialists who meet regularly to discuss each patient's care and progress. Our surgeons, specialists in minimally invasive procedures, have extensive experience treating all types of cancer. We encourage patients and their loved ones to participate in a wide range of complementary and alternative treatments, including support groups, nutritional counseling, massage and more.
