Colorectal Cancer Program at OhioHealth
Colorectal cancer is one of the few cancers that can be prevented through screening.
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common types of cancer diagnosed and treated at OhioHealth. We provide the highest quality, patient-focused care with advanced technology, innovative programs, expert caregivers and screening facilities conveniently located throughout the region.
OhioHealth endoscopy labs offer diagnostic evaluations, including colonoscopies, to screen for colorectal cancer. In addition, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to precisely determine the location and extent of a patient’s colorectal cancer.
OhioHealth endoscopy labs use advanced technology to reveal problem areas and identify changes in the colon earlier than ever before. Enhancements to image technology that our physicians use to view the colon, new tools and more effective medications now make it possible to remove polyps that were difficult and — a few years ago — impossible to remove.
OhioHealth uses advanced imaging tools, including state-of-the-art endorectal ultrasound and MRI technology, to determine the stage of a cancer and guide further treatment.
An Innovative Approach to Cancer Treatment
The OhioHealth approach to cancer care involves a partnership of experts, including surgical, medical and radiation oncology, radiology, pathology, gastroenterology, palliative care, hospice, nursing, navigation, and research and genetic counseling. Our focus is always on the individual needs and experience of each patient, so we pay special attention to your quality-of-life concerns, wellness, spiritual and emotional care.
Multidisciplinary Treatment Conference
The OhioHealth Multidisciplinary Treatment Conference is a treatment planning approach where experts from the cancer care team meet to review and discuss your medical condition and treatment options. Unique cases may also be presented to the MD Anderson Multidisciplinary Planning Conference for review and input.
