Preventing cancer

There are many different ways to help prevent cancer. In addition to living a healthy lifestyle, there are also steps you can take to address your family history. We offer genetic counseling to help determine your risk.

Advanced cancer treatment

Find access to innovative treatment options from experts close to home. You’ll benefit from extensive care options for various cancers:

  • Medical oncology – treatment for cancer involving chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy or targeted therapy
  • Radiation therapy – treatment of cancer using radiation such as X-rays
    • Calypso - The Calypso system is used on patients with prostate cancer. It works with a GPS system to precisely track the tumor location in real time

    • Robotic surgery – surgery that can be done with very small cuts to reduce pain, scarring and time in the hospital
