Returning You To Health Is Our Goal
A cancer diagnosis can be scary and difficult—not only for the patient, but for family and friends as well. We can help.
At the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Cancer Center, our goal is to make your experience as easy as possible by providing comprehensive, compassionate, state-of-the-art care in one convenient setting. Using molecular diagnostics and cancer therapy to tailor a treatment plan that’s optimized for each patient, we can locate and treat cancers so precisely, outcomes are better, faster and less invasive than ever before!

Using traditional approaches, minimally-invasive procedures or the latest in image-guided techniques, our cancer specialists are extraordinarily precise in removing the cancer while preserving as much normal tissue and function as possible.
