None of this is what you planned.We understand.
Treatment of cancer is central to who we are. For example, The Mary Jo Cropper Family Breast Center was founded on the premise that breast cancer deserves its own place and environment. This one-of-a-kind facility takes you from your initial mammogram through individualized treatment. We put you and your life at the center. While we are proud of this facility, we treat all types of cancer with equal vigor.
Breast cancer surpasses all other types of cancer that we treat. Although lung, gastrointestinal, melanoma and blood disorders are also prevalent in our patients. Each patient receives their own map and path depending on the type of cancer diagnosed, that puts you - the patient - at the center of your treatment.
Our process is simple and enables you to continue with your obligations seamlessly. Medical institutions are generally full of paperwork, waiting rooms and bureaucracy.
Our organization’s central cancer operating body is called our tumor board. Our tumor board meets weekly. This is a diverse group of physicians from ALL specialties who meet to discuss our patients. This insures that all of your doctors hear the same thing at the same time. Collectively this brain trust is able to make the best decision for you.
The tumor board is uniquely TriHealth and means that for every doctor and multidisciplinary nurse that you visit, there are many more who have learned about you and your health. This team meets weekly to offer the best recommendations and a 360 degrees’ view of you.
While this is the science behind what we do, we excel most at personal treatment.
We are the place that offers world class personal care, treatment and positive results.
We go through this with you and make your journey simple without the burden of unanswered questions.
A cancer diagnosis can leave you feeling overwhlemed, and with many questions. At the TriHealth Cancer Institute, we're here to walk you through your cancer journey, beginning with understanding your diagnosis.
