Multi-disciplinary Care at The Georgia Cancer Center
For a range of cancer types we treat at the Georgia Cancer Center, our team of specially-trained cancer providers are skilled in the care of your unique diagnosis. Every type of cancer reacts differently within your unique biological microenvironment and so our teams work together to collaborate and determine a personalized treatment plan for your individual needs.
We work with both adult and pediatric patients including input from family members or caregivers, through a multi-disciplinary approach to care – meaning we bring together an entire team of specialists for healthcare decisions. Knowing each patient has different goals and objectives, the Georgia Cancer Center also has an entire support network to help you every step of the way. As a patient at the Georgia Cancer Center, you will have the support of an entire multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists.
Evidence-Based Medicine Includes Focus on Research and Clinical Trials
At an academic medical center like Augusta University, your care options are not limited, but include innovative treatments through unique research programs. Our oncology research team has been awarded prestigious grants from the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health, including the state’s only minority-focused research program. This evidence-based approach to care means that your treatment plan may include clinical trials or treatment options not available elsewhere. Through our wide range of cancer treatments, our goal is to help reduce the burden of cancer and improve your quality of life.
Minimally-Invasive Surgery Reduces the Burden of Cancer
At the Georgia Cancer Center, our multi-disciplinary team provides innovative treatment options, including minimally-invasive surgeries, for improved patient outcomes.
Support Services Available to Help Patients and Family Members
Whether an initial cancer diagnosis or dealing with the chronic course of illness, our specially-trained team of supportive care specialists are here to help you manage symptoms and cope throughout all stages of this journey. At the Georgia Cancer Center, we don’t just take care of your cancer, we take care of you.
