Education about advanced research and treatment options
We offer access to new treatments through research and clinical trials.
Colorectal cancer research
We have done extensive research on colorectal cancer treatment. In fact, we helped confirm minimally invasive surgery is effective for colon cancer. This work continues with research into new treatments and approaches to cancer care, such as:
- Cancer genetic therapy for cancer
- How exercise affects cancer recurrence
- Improved colorectal cancer screenings
- Improved surgical techniques
- New immunotherapy and chemotherapy and medical oncology treatments
Access to clinical trials
Clinical trials help us understand more about colorectal cancer treatment. Patients who volunteer to join a trial can access therapies and medications not yet available to the general public.
We consider each patient for clinical trials during treatment evaluations. We offer available trials as they are appropriate. Dedicated nurse case managers follow patients in our trials and help schedule treatments and answer questions.
