Cancer Treatment at Van Elslander Cancer Center

Here are just some of the extensive programs and services we provide at the Van Elslander Cancer Center.

You can also learn more about our Radiation Oncology program or our Breast Care Program.

Many types of cancer can be effectively treated with chemotherapy, the use of intravenous or pill-form drugs developed to target and kill cancer cells. For some cancers, chemotherapy may be the stand-alone treatment. Often it is combined with surgery or radiation therapy.

Through affiliations with national organizations and research partnerships, the Van Elslander Cancer Center’s medical oncologists are able to offer many progressive and aggressive cancer therapies. Clinical trials are available to patients who meet research criteria.
