Treatment Options

Oncology Services at UI Health provides a range of treatment options for patients with all types of cancers, including solid tumors, cancers of the blood and marrow, and lymph nodes.

While some tumors may be easily contained and require minimal treatment, others can be more aggressive, require greater attention, and may necessitate a combination of therapies to prohibit them from spreading to other organ structures.

Our renowned specialists — including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and cancer scientists — understand the dynamics of cancer genetically, environmentally, and behaviorally, and they develop targeted approaches and individualized therapies for each patient.

Cancer treatments at UI Health include:

Medical Oncology
The Division of Hematology & Oncology comprises a dedicated team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and pharmacists who work to treat cancers of the blood and other blood disorders, and ensure the needs of the patient and families are met from the onset of care.
