Medical oncology is the treatment of cancer with medicine such as chemotherapy, biotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormones. Our medical oncologists treat all types of cancers, such as tumors and blood cancers, with the most innovative treatments available, including infusions. Infusions are treatments given through the veins with a solution created by medical specialists.
Hematology treatment for blood disease may involve medications, blood transfusions, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a bone marrow transplant. Your treatment plan will depend on the specific characteristics of the blood disorder you have been diagnosed with, and what path your doctor has discussed with you.
Unfortunately, the delivery of cancer therapy, like chemotherapy, often affects the body’s normal organs and healthy tissues. The consequence of damaging healthy tissue and affecting other organs not touched by cancer, is a complication, or side effect, of treatment. As part of the treatment plan, side effects are measured and recorded, to make sure our patients continue to be taken care of. Some treatments may be added, to help ease the side effects you may experience, but they may not be able to be altered too much, to avoid interruption of treatment effectiveness.
