Dignity Health Medical Foundation oncologists provide comprehensive care for our patients with a cancer diagnosis.

Your medical oncologist leads a multidisciplinary care team, which may include surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, nurses, and social workers; working together to tailor a care plan designed for your unique needs, using the most innovative treatment options.

We understand how difficult a cancer diagnosis can be. Our team is focused on what matters to each individual on this journey, from support during treatment to life after. We want each of our patients to feel safe and heard throughout their treatment journey.

Cancer specialties we offer

Cancer care services

Hematology/medical oncology—the use of medicines to treat cancer—has seen great advancements in recent years and offers a variety of new, precise and personalized treatments. Often used in conjunction with other therapies, such as radiation oncology, medical oncology is a valuable tool in helping your chances for a successful outcome.

The term chemotherapy is used to describe medications that shrink or destroy cancerous tissue, prevent its return after surgery or relieve symptoms caused by the cancer. Depending on the cancer type, chemotherapy may be given by injection, IV or pill. Patients receive chemotherapy weekly or monthly, depending on the type of medication and the type of cancer. We sometimes combine chemotherapy with radiation therapy or follow-up surgery.

A subtype of chemotherapy is hormone therapy. Some hormones stimulate cancer cells to grow. Hormonal therapies may work to decrease the amount of hormone produced by the body or they may block the action of the hormones on cancer cells. Several types of cancer can be treated with hormone therapy including prostate cancer, breast cancer and endometrial cancer. We may combine this type of cancer treatment with others to deliver the best possible outcome.

Biological therapy is another subtype of chemotherapy that has seen tremendous growth in recent years. It refers to drugs biologically engineered to target a certain cancer. Some biological therapies use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body’s immune system to act against cancer cells. Others, such as antibodies or segments of genetic material target the cancer cells directly. Still others inhibit nutrients required by the cancer cell.

While we all face some risk for cancer, patients with a family history of cancer may have genes that put them at greater risk. Genetic counseling is a technology that can provide strategies for prevention and early detection. In cases when cancer is already diagnosed, genetic testing can lead to more effective treatment. The Woodland Cancer Center genetic counseling team works hand-in-hand with our oncologists to ensure patients receive the most targeted, precise treatment available.

Our team of comprehensive specialists includes highly trained infusion therapists. These professionals work closely with each patient’s team of care providers to ensure they receive effective and efficient treatment in a comfortable setting.
