TriHealth Cancer Institute
At TriHealth Cancer Institute, we focus all our skills and resources on turning cancer patients into cancer survivors. Leading cancer experts throughout our system meet at a weekly "tumor board" to determine the best course of treatment for each patient.
Your care team works with your physician to create a plan that covers everything from insurance to testing to treatment and reflects your input and needs. As part of your individualized treatment, you may be able to participate in a clinical trial. Clinical research trials offer access to promising new treatments, and are part of the way new treatments are discovered. A cancer care navigator then helps you schedule appointments and stay on track. Whether you need surgery, radiology or chemotherapy, TriHealth Cancer Institute has expertise in all areas. We'll even help you find financial and personal support. When physicians, hospitals and communities work together to help you live better, not even cancer stands a chance.
The TriHealth Cancer Institute wields the power of the full TriHealth system, which has been named among the country's Top 100 Most Integrated Health Networks 13 times.
From outcomes, to prudent management of resources, to caring and compassionate service, to innovative research, TriHealth operates in an environment of continuous quality improvement across its more than 80 locations. As the landscape of health care continues to evolve both nationally and locally, TriHealth is prepared to respond to the demand for more coordinated, patient-centered models of care with strong physician collaboration and leadership.
Leading the Way in Brain Tumor Treatment
TriHealth’s Good Samaritan Hospital is the first in the Midwest and third in U.S. to receive brain tumor certification by the Joint Commission.
The certification by the Joint Commission is recognition of the quality of patient care, clinical excellence and a culture of excellence across the health system, among others.
TriHealth’s team-based approach brings together our brain tumor specialists with our partners at Mayfield Brain & Spine, who meet regularly at Tumor Board to review challenging cases and recommend treatment plans. The Tumor Board includes the region’s only fellowship-trained neuro-oncologist along with neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and pathologists. The team reviews brain tumor scans and patient histories, discusses possible treatment plans, and arrives at a consensus opinion, which is discussed with the patient and his or her family.
The brain tumor team treats all types of tumors, including glioma/glioblastoma, metastatic tumors, skull base tumors, meningioma, pituitary tumors, acoustic neuroma, lymphoma and spinal tumors. Advanced technologies available include intraoperative Airo® CT, stereotactic neuro-navigation, stereotactic radiosurgery, microscopic and endoscopic surgery, and systemic and intrathecal chemotherapy.
