Treatments for cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, as well as newer techniques such as interventional radiology and immunotherapy. Find basic information about cancer treatment and learn more about what to expect as a Atal Memorial Cancer Care patient or caregiver.
For most cancers, treatment is led by one or more primary physicians, including a medical oncologist, a surgical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist. For some cancers, you may also see an interventional radiologist. Each of these physicians brings a defined set of expertise and techniques for treating cancer.
At AMCC, members of each treatment team specialize in treating one type of cancer. This means that the physicians and other healthcare professionals on your treatment team are highly experienced in caring for patients with the type of cancer you have. Working together, your treatment team will develop a plan for the combination of treatments that will lead to the best possible outcome for you.
