Excellent Patient Care
Patients receive friendly, compassionate care from dedicated health-care professionals at a teaching facility. The team collaborates to create personalized treatment plans. Treatment options run the gamut from high-tech bone marrow and stem cell transplantation (autologous and allogeneic) and advanced technology for image-guided surgery to radiation oncology and chemotherapy. Patients may receive genetic counseling, pastoral care and hospice care assistance from social workers. All services - including surgery and interventional radiology - are provided at the Cancer Center or Saint Louis University Hospital, which is easily accessible through a bridge that connects the two facilities.
Staffed by oncology professionals, the Community Cancer Resource Center at Saint Louis University Cancer Center offers some of the latest personalized information to patients, their families and the general public, including access to Web-based cancer information sites and support groups. Saint Louis University Cancer Center carries its expertise into the community through its speakers' bureau, participation in health fairs and other educational outreach efforts.
