Cancer refers to the development and growth of abnormal cells in the body. When these cells divide and spread, they form a mass or growth. Cancer can occur anywhere in the body. At Dignity Health, our world-class cancer center is dedicated to excellence in care for all cancer types in Arizona.
Dignity Health’s cancer treatment services are performed by a team of board-certified medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons and cancer care specialists. Supported by dietitians, pharmacists, social workers, and spiritual care experts, our cancer care team works together to ensure you and your family receive the best possible care.
Cancer screenings are tests that look for signs of cancer before you have symptoms. The goal of cancer screenings is to find cancer early, in its most treatable stages. Some screenings can prevent cancer by finding precancerous changes.
At Dignity Health, we are dedicated to providing specialized, world-class cancer care that puts your needs first.
We offer many advanced services to treat cancer, including:
Interventional Radiology - uses image guidance, such as X-rays, CT scans and ultrasounds, to perform minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are effective alternatives to surgery.
Radiation Oncology - is a common cancer treatment that uses radiation to treat and kill tumors. Radiation oncology options include Gamma Knife, Cyberknife, Brachytherapy, IMRT, and External Beam Therapy.
Surgical Oncology - Our state-of-the-art advanced surgical methods include minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, image-guided cancer surgery, and the da Vinci Surgical System, a sophisticated robotic platform that enables complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach.
Chemotherapy - is the use of medication to kill cancers. Our outpatient infusion centers offer a healing environment for chemotherapy treatment.
