Our Multidisciplinary Team Is Your Cancer Team

Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are used to treat thoracic and esophageal cancers. Recent additions to these treatments include tracheobronchial and esophageal stenting for certain tumors of the airways and esophagus, which improve breathing and swallowing. Decades of clinical experience show that combinations of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are often most effective. Your team will tailor your cancer treatment for you.

When you visit the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute, you will meet with the following multidisciplinary team of doctors in one visit:

  • Your surgeon can order diagnostic tests, perform a biopsy to see if your tumor is malignant or operate to remove cancer if necessary.
  • Your medical oncologist can administer chemotherapy or immunotherapy that kills cancer cells.
  • Your radiation oncologist can pinpoint places where your cancer is growing and use precisely focused X-rays to reduce or destroy it.

Together, these specialists, in consultation with your primary care doctor and with the support of your care-management team, will work with you to individualize and tailor your cancer care treatments to you and your cancer’s unique molecular profile for the most effective results.

At ChristianaCare, we are committed to providing you with the expertise, treatment options and care you need on your journey back to health. We are here for you.
