Our Cancer Treatment Approach
Cancer is a complex disease and usually requires a combination of treatments. Physicians at Community Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Care Center have the expertise to treat all adult cancers, with specialty focus in breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancers.
At the Cancer Care Center, all treatment options for your type of cancer are available – whether you require surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of these. Physicians, nurses and other cancer team members work together to design a comprehensive plan that fits the treatment and quality of life needs for each individual.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is often frightening. Knowing you can get everything you need in your own community can make it just a little less stressful.
The Cancer Network
As part of the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network we're here to provide you with treatment that will be optimally effective for your cancer. Our physicians know how important it is to work in multidisciplinary teams that approach cancer treatment from many different angles.
This means your doctors, nurses and other team members consult each other and collaborate to put together a treatment plan that will work for you as an individual. Our specialists interact in "tumor boards" to examine each person's case carefully.
A tumor board is a group of physicians from all specialties involved with treating your cancer, as well as others who specialize in a specific cancer or group of related cancers. This group meets to discuss the details of each case and recommend treatment options that will result in the best possible outcome for each individual.
Clinical trials are also available for eligible patients through the Cancer Network.
Within the Cancer Network, each cancer patient has access to the expertise of many cancer specialists – including radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists and others – expertise that is needed to tackle a complex disease like cancer.
In addition to providing the most advanced treatments, we are here to answer your questions and to connect you with all the support resources you need while you are receiving treatment and afterward.
