The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a company that treats cancer and specializes in that area only. The belief of Cancer Treatment Centers of America is that each cancer is unique and it needs to be treated independently and with special care. Since each person who has cancer is an individual, each case will take personal and individualized care.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America has a long history of successful treatments with cancer. There are Cancer Treatment Center of America hospital facilities in Atlanta, Georgia, Chicago, Illinois, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Phoenix, Arizona.
At the Cancer Treatment Centers of America there are many options and varieties of treatments. Each treatment can be given separately or in combination with others depending on the nature of the treatment plan for each patient.
The varied plans of treatment include chemotherapy, radiation, hormone therapy, neurosurgery, naturopathic medicine, immunotherapy, nutrition therapy, interventional pulmonology, mind-body medicine, targeted therapy, hematologic oncology, interventional radiology, spiritual support, gastroenterology, and many others that are applied specifically to a treatment plan.
Treatment is not just for the individual who is ill with cancer, but it extends to the entire family that is involved with that person. It is very important for a cancer patient to have a good supporting network and that certainly includes the family.
The initial steps of the treatment for any cancer patient involve a three to five day period of evaluation where a complete panel of diagnostic tests is given along with a complete evaluation of the patient’s medical history. From that information, a comprehensive treatment plan is designed for that individual so that treatment can begin on an individualized basis.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America, or CTCA was initially established in 1988. CTCA has been given strong scores in patient satisfaction as well as earning Five Star Quality Ratings by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
