Our medical oncologists are at the forefront of cancer treatment working as part of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and coordinators who use a patient-centered approach to tailor treatment regimens for optimal outcomes.
That means cancer patients benefit from an individualized treatment plan developed to address their unique needs. In many cases, this may include chemotherapy following another procedure, such as surgery. Or our oncology team may recommend a neoadjuvant strategy, in which a therapy is given before surgery, for example, to shrink a tumor.
MedStar Union Memorial Hospital features an inpatient cancer unit dedicated to the care of medical cancer patients that is staffed by nurses specially trained and certified in oncology and the administration of chemotherapy. Other medical oncology services include outpatient chemotherapy, hydration and infusion therapy.
