You will appreciate the convenience of receiving all of your services under one roof at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, but the advantages to our multidisciplinary approach go much deeper.
Studies show that patients who receive their cancer screening, prevention, treatment and palliative-care services in a setting of multispecialty care tend to live longer and have a better quality of life. And because our model of care is based on multidisciplinary centers, every patient benefits from a team of experts who are focused on his or her individual care.
When you visit the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, you will meet with your nurse navigator and a team of doctors in one visit. Your team will be made up of doctors who specialize in your type of cancer and typically includes:
Whether it was 10 months ago or 10 years ago, you still remember when the doctor said you were done with your cancer treatments.
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are used to treat rectal and anal cancers.
Decades of clinical experience show that combinations of these treatments are often most effective in treating prostate cancer and genitourinary cancers.
As part of our ongoing commitment to preventive care, ChristianaCare now offers lung screenings for your patients who have a history of heavy smoking.
Surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation and, in some cases, stem-cell transplantation are used to treat these cancers.
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are used, often in combination, to treat neurological cancers.
Melanoma may begin as a mole on the skin, but it can also begin in other pigmented tissues, such as in the eye or intestines.
Your team will tailor your cancer treatment for your cancer and for you.
Often these cancers will cause pain or neurological changes, and our team of specialists will help diagnose and treat these problems.
