ASHWAUBENON — Patrick Mansky, a board-certified medical oncologist, recently joined The Cancer Team at Bellin Health.

Mansky’s specialty areas include treatment of cancers of the gastrointestinal system, breast, lung and sarcomas. His expertise covers medical and pediatric oncology.

He explains his treatment philosophy as: “I take into account the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical needs of my patients in conjunction with the state-of-the-art cancer care we provide here at our cancer center.”

Mansky received his medical degree from the University of Witten/Herdecke in Germany. After his fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, New York, he received residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics at Metro Health/Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Mansky completed clinical and research fellowship training in medical oncology and pediatric hematology/oncology at the National Cancer Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

Before joining Bellin, Mansky was a clinical investigator in the oncology program at the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine/National Institutes of Health and the first director of the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Consult Service at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center.

In his spare time, Mansky enjoys spending time with his family, playing and listening to classical music, painting, tennis, skiing, sailing, traveling and the outdoors.

Bellin’s cancer center, The Cancer Team, 1580 Commanche Ave., Green Bay, effectively eliminates the need for patients in Northeast Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to travel to university hospitals or larger cities to receive first-rate cancer care in one facility.

The $11.5 million cancer center officially opened in 2008, offering area cancer patients a conveniently located 32,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility designed to address patients’ needs during and after treatment.
