Cancer Information

Regional Cancer Center provides a comprehensive approach to the evaluation and treatment of patients with cancer. Collaboration between radiation oncologists and physicians at UPMC Hamot and Saint Vincent Hospital helps to provide patients a multidisciplinary perspective on their diagnosis and treatment options. The treatment chosen depends on the particular stage of cancer, health of the patient and personal preference.

Cancer By Type

While some cancer diagnoses are best served with a multi-specialty approach that includes evaluations from a variety of clinical perspectives, others are best managed by a single physician.
