Our Specialized Team
Patients who come to the Colon and Rectal Cancer Center are seen by our highly specialized team, including some of the best practitioners in every medical discipline. Our experts' accomplishments include advancing national standards of care, conducting breakthrough research, spearheading international studies of new drugs, and forming innovative methods of preventing, diagnosing, and treating colorectal cancer.
Because we are a highly specialized treatment center with clinicians who exclusively treat these diseases, we focus on the distinct needs of people with colon and rectal cancer. This includes patients who are at every stage of the disease, from premalignant lesions to advanced malignancy that has spread to the liver or other organs. Our nurses are certified and trained in oncology nursing and specialize in caring for patients entering into, undergoing, or recovering from gastrointestinal cancer treatments.
Our physician-scientists also focus on survivorship care and have researched how lifestyle (including diet, caffeine, and exercise) impact recurrence. The results of these discoveries are integrated into treatment plans for every patient.
