Few programs across the nation can deliver the kind of team that Henry Ford brings to each patient. We have experts in 20 different cancer specialties, with experience and training that is specific to your type of cancer.
Our Cancer Team
The team at the Henry Ford Cancer Institute includes disease specific specialists from every medical specialty, including Medical Oncologists, Cancer Surgeons, and Radiation Oncologists. We are one strong, integrated team, ensuring you have access to the latest advances in cancer treatment, research, clinical trials and support throughout your journey.
We offer a rare team approach to cancer surgery, where specially trained and experienced surgeons in your specific type of cancer work together with dozens of other specialists. The cancer surgeons who treat complex and rare cancers are all fellowship trained and have dedicated their practices to certain types of cancers. They team up with community-based surgeons to offer comprehensive care.
Our medical oncologists are at the forefront in the research and development of new therapies, often one of the first and only cancer programs in Michigan to offer the most advanced medical treatments for certain types of cancer. We are actively involved in national research studies through the Southwest Oncology Group, one of the largest cooperative groups funded by the National Cancer Institute for cancer clinical trials in the United States.
Our radiation therapy team members have developed or improved many types of radiation therapy. Our team works together to design and deliver radiation therapies for the brain, spine, and body. Our facilities are accredited by the American College of Radiology, which evaluates safety, quality control, and patient care standards for practices that offer radiation oncology care.
