Cancer Care at Schneck
The Schneck Cancer Center has everything you expect of a top-flight Cancer Center – knowledgeable and caring staff, state-of-the-art technologies, and most importantly comprehensive services under one roof. And it’s right here in Seymour, Indiana. We built it here for one reason: You.
Schneck Cancer Center utilizes a range of standard therapies when diagnosing and treating cancer patients.
Medical Oncology is an area of specialized cancer treatment that focuses on implementing systemic therapies that target cancer cells throughout the body. Treatments such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormone therapy are utilized to minimize and neutralize cancer cells within the body.
A medical oncologist works directly with our patients to ensure they fully understand the full scope of their diagnosis and the resulting treatment options available for their specific type of cancer.
Radiation oncologists work alongside medical oncologists to implement radiation-based treatments that fight cancer.
Technology such as a four-dimensional CT scan is utilized to identify cancer cells. Radiation therapies such as IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) are then implemented to carry out a targeted treatment plan. Radiation oncology allows for a more localized approach to cancer treatment, only affecting the cancerous areas or tumors and protecting the surrounding healthy tissue.
Pinpoint accuracy and highly personalized treatments make Schneck Cancer Center the ideal oncology provider in Seymour, Indiana.
