Cancer expertise, comprehensive treatment
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, Dallas Regional Medical
Center offers expert care. We provide a range of cancer treatment options
that are tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs. Doctors
plan treatment by consulting with surgeons and chemotherapy and radiation
specialists to develop the most effective approach. In most cases, several
treatment options are combined to provide the most comprehensive treatment.
Dallas Regional Medical Center provides all levels of care, including
inpatient, outpatient, hospice and home care services.
Part of Dallas Regional Medical Center’s full-spectrum care includes
special support services to address the unique needs of cancer patients
and their families. Our multidisciplinary cancer care team includes primary
care doctors, oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, nurses, pain
management specialists, dieticians and other professionals who work together
to provide individualized care. Treatment options include:
Hormones can kill cancer cells, or slow or stop their growth. Doctors can
prescribe medications that affect the activity or production of hormones,
or may surgically remove a gland that produces hormones.
Dallas Regional Medical Center's cancer care teams carefully evaluate
each patient’s needs to determine whether surgery offers the best
chance for success. When surgery presents the best option, doctors utilize
minimally invasive techniques whenever possible — including robotic
surgery, which gives surgeons greater precision and can offer patients
less scarring and a faster recovery.
