Christ Medical Center's Cancer Institute offers a unique approach to patient care, both for new patients and for patients who have sought treatment elsewhere and want another approach. In fact, many of our patients were told by other hospitals that their cancer was "untreatable" or "inoperable."
With the newest capabilities, such as CyberKnife radiosurgery, da Vinci® robotic surgery, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and endoscopic ultrasound, Christ Medical Center offers hope and solutions to patients who have few other places to turn.

Our team of pathologists performs rigorous testing to understand how your specific form of cancer may progress and which chemotherapy drugs, method of radiation therapy or other treatment modalities are most appropriate for you.
