What are the potential side effects of chemotherapy? Will I be able to recover after radiation therapy? Will my healthcare insurance cover the cost of cancer treatment? These are all very serious and very poignant questions that many cancer patients will spend countless, sleepless nights wondering.
Whether you are about to enter into cancer treatment or are currently in the tail-end of your cancer treatment journey, we know that there can be a lot of concerns and anxieties. The world is full of plenty of uncertainties, but we want you to feel as comfortable and confident as possible. We would love to discuss treatment options, or address any of your concerns as you move forward in your journey towards reclaiming your health.
At St. Joseph Hospital, we are committed to providing you with a level of care that ensures the preservation of your quality of life. By perfecting our surgical procedures, many of our patients can enjoy the same results of cancer surgery without the disfiguring aftermath. In fact, we routinely perform surgical treatment of prostate and colon cancer, and can preserve breast tissue by performing lumpectomy surgery on patients.
