Creating personalized treatments for every cancer patient is the driving force behind all we do within our Cancer Network. Our cancer physicians have expertise in today’s advanced diagnostics and treatment options. And because they devote their time to caring for patients and researching specific cancers, they have quick access to the latest scientific advancements — sometimes before these new treatments are widely available.
“The best of both worlds” describes our academic medicine advantage. Our Cancer Network offers advanced care close to home — while assuring that you have access to the latest in precision cancer medicine from the only academic medical center in eastern Wisconsin.
Cancer and the COVID-19 Vaccine
There is currently no data that suggests current or former cancer patients should avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Cancer can weaken your immune system, so we recommend that most patients get the vaccine as soon as possible.
