If you have been diagnosed with cancer, you want a comprehensive treatment that targets the illness quickly without impacting your overall health as much as possible. Let’s talk about what to expect from comprehensive cancer treatment at Wooster Community Hospital.
What Is Comprehensive Cancer Treatment?
Anyone who has experienced cancer knows it is life-altering. Your body is under attack, and the condition impacts yours family, friends, career, future plans, emotional well-being, and even finances.
Also, your cancer is different than others. You cannot settle for a cookie-cutter style of evaluation, treatment, and care. As such, your treatment must focus solely on you. That’s where comprehensive treatment care at Wooster Community Hospital comes in.
Comprehensive cancer treatment involves an interdisciplinary team of:
- Physicians (oncologists, radiologists, geneticists, and more)
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
This collection of medical professionals bring their areas of expertise to the table and consider each patient, their diagnosis, and the unique path to remission and recovery. If you have pre-existing conditions, such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes, these health needs and their implications for cancer treatment will be evaluated, too. Patient care plans are totally customized using information gathered from the patient, primary care physician, test results, and more.
Comprehensive cancer treatment can include a variety of methods that focus on not only getting rid of cancer, but also controlling symptoms associated with the disease, treatments, and other health issues. Examples include:
- Surgery, including minimally invasive procedures
How Will Comprehensive Cancer Care Help Me?
In short, comprehensive cancer treatment helps patients of all ages live as well as possible through every aspect of their care and beyond. A personal patient care navigator provides you and your loved ones with
