Colon cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the country. However, when caught early, it has a high cure rate. Depending on such specifics as the type of cancer (not all colon cancers are the same), its location, and its stage, treatment for colon cancer might include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or all three in combination...
The Cancer Team offers a powerful blend of all therapies, provided by a multidisciplinary team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and cancer surgeons.
From the colon cancer patient’s perspective, care is coordinated, responsive, and information is easy to come by.
Every colon cancer patient is assigned a Cancer Coach who will help the patient and family members navigate through every aspect of treatment. The Cancer Coach will help you understand your diagnosis, your treatment options and will assist you in setting up appointments and finding the resources you need including the coordination of integrative medical services, palliative care, and help with financial resources.
Complementary or integrative colon cancer therapies offered at The Cancer Team include such resources as nutritional support, acupuncture, spiritual support and physical therapy.

Rest assured that every member of your team will work together to give you comprehensive, patient-focused, supportive colon cancer treatment.
