The Cancer Treatment Centers of America Use a Collaborative Approach

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America treat people that have cancer in a variety of different ways, but that is all that they do. They do not treat other diseases, unless they have something to do with and they relate to the cancer treatment itself. People who have never been around cancer have little idea of the toll it takes from the patient and those around him or her who have the disease.

For example 7 out of 10 cancer patients are vastly undernourished and suffer from great fatigue. Many are in pain and are very discouraged and scared. The relatives of cancer patients are in a state of distress too, and from an emotional aspect they need support as well.

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) provide treatment for the whole person and use a collaborative approach to treat a person who has cancer. That means that the disease itself is treated, but so are the ancillary conditions such as pain, emotional stress, side effects from medication, traditional and non-traditional approaches, and other treatments that have been proven to be effective.

When a patient arrives at CTCA he or she receives a very thorough interview and physical examination, then a personalized treatment plan is devised. A team of physicians is then assigned to that patient in order to provide the maximum care and consideration for the type of cancer present and its treatment.

Many types of treatments are available such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy. Non-treatment such as hormone therapy, acupuncture, genetics, mind-body medicine, chiropractic, nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, hematologic oncology, advanced genomic testing and many other treatments that have proven to be effective.

Cancer Treatment Center Hospitals are located in Philadelphia, PA, Atlanta, GA, Chicago, IL, Tulsa, OK, and Phoenix, AZ. The hospital facilities are set up so patients and their families can receive treatment under one roof without having to travel to several destinations.
