Individualized Cancer Treatment at Tampa General Hospital
Tampa General Hospital provides individualized cancer treatment with a multidisciplinary team made up of oncologists, surgeons, and other cancer specialists. Our experienced team works together to develop personalized cancer treatment plans based on each patient’s specific needs. While some patients only require one type of treatment, it is often necessary to target a tumor with a combination of treatments, and our patients appreciate having access to a broad range of options at TGH, as well as support services related to nutrition, psychology, pain management, and other needs.
TGH offers cancer treatment in a caring and compassionate environment. Furthermore, we utilize leading technology to treat cancer in the most effective manner possible. Some of the main treatment options we offer include:
- Surgery – Through surgery, we’ll seek to remove cancer from the body. In many instances, we can perform surgery using a minimally invasive approach that allows us to eliminate a tumor while reducing the impact of the procedure on the body. Robotic surgery often allows for enhanced precision.
- Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells. At TGH, we provide chemotherapy infusions on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.
- Radiation therapy – High doses of radiation can destroy cancer cells and shrink tumors. The radiation treatments we perform include image-guided radiation therapy and stereotactic radiosurgery that enable us to target cancer cells precisely while protecting healthy tissue.
- Immunotherapy – With immunotherapy cancer treatment, we use substances derived from living organisms to stimulate or suppress the immune system so the body can more easily fight cancer.
