What is personalized cancer treatment?

Personalized Hematology-Oncology of Wake Forest is one of the very few private practices that focus on personalized cancer treatment and efficient quality care. We tap into genome technology to deliver optimal, safe and cost-effective chemotherapy treatment, while ensuring that adult cancer patients are not under treated or over treated. Our practice collaborates with community private practices and cancer centers to translate the latest cancer research into a target therapy customized for each patient.

Questions every cancer patient asks: Do I want to undergo treatment? What quality life will I have with or without treatment? What are the side effects of therapy? Does it instead make sense to decline treatment and spend time with my loved ones?

Personalized cancer therapy is not a panacea, but it does help cancer patients make thoughtful, informed decisions.
