Team Care

Our radiation oncologists work with a talented team of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, nutritionists, nurses and therapists to provide each patient with outstanding, compassionate, personalized care.

State-of-the-art Treatment Approaches

Patients with breast cancer can be confident that they are receiving the highest quality care that uses the latest technology and treatment approaches.

When appropriate, we offer patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials that will help define the standard of care over the next 50 years. These trials enable your physicians to work toward the ultimate goal of improving treatments for patients throughout Wisconsin and the world.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials for patients undergoing radiation therapy may involve new ways to use existing treatments, new drugs or combinations of drugs and radiation, or new procedures or devices. They may also investigate patients’ quality of life or the effects of a cancer diagnosis on individuals, families or communities.

Many people participate in clinical trials to help future patients. Your doctor may ask you about taking part in a clinical trial. But please note each clinical trial has specific criteria for participation. Only patients who meet these criteria will be able to participate.

Please don’t hesitate to ask your doctor whether there is a clinical trial that is appropriate for you.
