Cancer Treatments We Provide
At United Hospital Center, you can stay close to home while benefiting from state-of-the-art technology and treatment. By working closely with our oncology specialists, a treatment plan tailored to your stage of cancer will be recommended. The three primary treatment options are surgery, chemotherapy/biotherapy, and radiation.
Surgery can be used in various parts of the cancer process, from biopsy for determining a diagnosis to curing cancer. Surgical removal depends on the type, size, location, grade and stage of tumor as well as medical history.
Learn About Surgery
Chemotherapy drugs, given intravenously or orally, are used to treat cancer that has spread throughout the body, cancer that has been removed or cancer that cannot be treated with surgery.Learn About Chemotherapy / Biotherapy
Radiation therapy is used to treat breast, lung, prostate, head and neck, cervix, ovary and uterus cancers. Therapies include External Beam Radiation Therapy, Brachy Therapy and Superficial X-Rays.
