Meet Our Director
A Message from Dr. Michael J. Kraut, M.D., Medical Director of the Assarian Cancer Center
The Assarian Cancer Center in Novi provides state of the art cancer care in a convenient, caring environment. Located on our Novi campus at Grand River and Beck Road, the Assarian Cancer Center is home to a radiation oncology facility with two linear accelerators, one of which is a Trilogy machine capable of brain and body stereotactic radiotherapy. The Trilogy unit allows our radiation oncologists to deliver high doses of pinpoint radiation, minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. The Assarian Cancer Center also features a large medical oncology practice with a full-service infusion center. Staffed by experienced, compassionate physicians, the Assarian Cancer Center provides an environment for the complete range of cancer therapies, delivered close to home.
Multidisciplinary care is the key to success when one is faced with a complex cancer problem. Our doctors, nurses, and ancillary personnel interact in regularly scheduled conferences designed to bring together the expertise needed to make the best, most comprehensive treatment plans, to give the patient the best chance for success.
We strive to provide care that treats the whole person. Cancer affects not only the patient but the entire family. Our doctors, nurses, social workers, and the rest of our care team work together to educate patient and family, relieve symptoms, reduce anxiety, and ease the fears associated with cancer and its treatment. It can be a difficult journey, but at the Assarian Cancer Center, we work with you and for you.
Michael J. Kraut, M.D. Medical Director
