In some instances, chemotherapy is ordered prior to your surgery. Importantly, TriHealth Cancer Institute provides a true multidisciplinary treatment clinic. This means that all specialties are in the same room as we mutually recommend care decisions for you. This includes surgery, nutrition, genetics, chemotherapy and radiation.

Not all patients require chemotherapy.


Many patients receive radiation within about four to six weeks after surgery. There are two types of radiation; intraoperative that occurs during surgery and standard radiation that occurs for about six days per week at one of our convenient locations (Kenwood, Good Samaritan Hospital or our Medi-Center at the Bethesda North Hospital Campus).


Surgery depends upon each individual situation

We are physicians, hospitals and communities working together to help you live better.
