Oncologic pathology

Our cancer center pathologists examine organs and tissues to determine what type of cancer you have, if it is malignant, and whether it has spread to the lymph nodes or other organs. They can also tell if a tumor is growing quickly, helping your oncologists and surgeons to provide the most appropriate course of treatment.

Personalized or precision medicine

Using genomic profiling and molecular diagnostics, our cancer specialists can develop a precise plan of treatment based on your body’s genes or proteins. Through testing, wes are able to pinpoint the precise genetic alterations in your cancer cells, allowing us to tailor treatments, including targeted therapies and immunotherapies, with unique precision.

Cancer genetics

If you have a history of cancer in your family, you may want to speak with your doctor about the potential benefits of genetic counseling. Our specially trained counselors offer genetic testing services to provide valuable insight into your risk of potentially developing cancer.

Patient navigation

A nurse navigator is a member of your multidisciplinary care team who serves as an advocate and educator for you and your family during and after your cancer journey. Nurse navigators facilitate communication between your entire care team, help coordinate appointments and transportation and are there to address any other barriers you may face during your cancer journey.
