What to Expect

We take a unique interdisciplinary approach that addresses the whole patient – medically, emotionally and socially – and offer services that span the entire spectrum of care, from detection, diagnosis, research and treatment to education and support.

Our office provides surgical oncology services as a component of its comprehensive cancer program. Surgical oncology services provide enhanced surgical expertise in more complicated cancer operations, as well as more comprehensive insight into the overall management of the cancer patient.
 
Cancer care does not end when active treatment has finished or when surgery is complete. This follow-up care may include physical examinations, medical tests, or both. We want to keep track of your recovery in the months and years ahead.

SURVIVORSHIP - Your care is not only the physical part. The mental, social and emotional impacts can also require attention. We encourage you to check out KRH Cancer Support & Survivorship services.

Family and friends are welcome to participate in most gatherings.
