Breast cancer treatments and technology
At OhioHealth, we are at the forefront of breast cancer treatment. We develop a care plan that’s best for you and most effective in treating your type of breast cancer.
Our expert breast surgeons collaborate with other specialists to precisely determine the best treatment approach for you and your type of cancer.
- Medical oncology
Our chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapies are highly individualized. Your medical oncologist, in collaboration with your breast cancer care team, will work together to determine and monitor the most effective chemotherapy treatment for your cancer. Our outpatient infusion centers offer a comfortable, convenient setting for treatment.
We also offer targeted therapies. These drug treatments block the growth and spread of cancer by interfering with specific molecules that are involved in the growth, progression and spread of cancer. This includes hormone therapy.
- Genetic sequencing
Testing cancer cells for mutations in genetic content can assist with selecting targeted drug therapy and understanding prognosis.
- Radiation therapy
Radiation therapy is unique to each individual and directed by your radiation oncologist. All our radiation therapy locations have real-time access to your plan of care, so you can schedule your appointments at the location that’s best for you.
- Interventional radiology
One of the newest and most aggressive options in cancer treatment today, interventional radiology targets and treats cancers that cannot be treated surgically by using heating, cooling or microwave energy to kill tumor cells. Patients benefit from low-risk complications and, in some cases, return home the same day.
- Lymphedema therapy
We provide manual therapy treatments and techniques to reduce lymphatic fluid accumulation (tissue swelling).
- Cancer rehabilitation
Our specialized therapists can develop an exercise program to improve joint mobility, restore flexibility, reduce pain and improve strength so you can safely return to your usual activities.
