Services Offered at The Patricia Lynch Cancer Center

Medical Oncology

Medical Oncolgy

Medical oncologists are specialists in diagnosing and treating cancer. They oversee the patient's care from diagnosis through treatment, coordinating treatment with other specialists and helping the patient manage symptoms and side effects from treatment. They use chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy or biological therapy, or a combination of these to treat the disease.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation Oncolgy

Radiation oncologists use radiation therapy to treat cancer. They apply their expertise in deciding which of the various types of radiation delivery should be used, such as radioactive implantations, external beam radiotherapy or hyperthermia, to produce the best outcomes for each patient. Holy Name physicians use technology that allows them to see exactly where tumors are located in the body, taking into account breathing or slight movements, so they can deliver much more precise treatment.

Surgical Oncology

Surgical Oncolgy

Surgical oncologists treat cancer by removing tumors and nearby tissue through open, robotic or laparoscopic procedures. They can diagnose, stage and treat certain types of cancers. They decide whether a patient is a good candidate for surgery based on the type, size, location, grade and stage of the tumor as well as the individual's general health. Often surgery is combined with other types of treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation or hormone therapy, which can be administered before or after the procedure.
