Thyroid Cancer Treatments
We provide the latest cancer treatment approaches for thyroid cancer patients. Our endocrinologists, surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists are board-certified and highly trained. These experts use the most advanced technology to achieve the best results.
Depending upon your diagnosis, your care might include one or more of these thyroid cancer treatments:
Organizing your treatment
Your endocrinologist and nuclear medicine physician serve as managers of your thyroid cancer care – evaluating test results, making recommendations, overseeing the development of your treatment plan, administering certain therapies and monitoring your progress.
Thyroid Cancer Patient Navigator
Patients receive help from the thyroid cancer patient navigator, Diane Anderson-Vance, who is available to answer questions, help arrange appointments and offer support throughout treatment at 215-481-2827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancer Inpatient Unit
Sometimes it’s necessary for cancer patients to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. Our dedicated oncology unit in Abington Memorial Hospital has 27 private rooms and provides a full medical/surgical facility. The unit’s highly skilled staff is specially trained in caring for patients in all phases of cancer treatment. Our certified oncology nurses and certified chemotherapy nurses have advanced education in cancer care and therapies. They also provide information and emotional support. The unit has an “open door” visiting policy, with no restrictions by hour or age.
Cancer Pain Management Team
Pain may be managed with oral analgesics, but other options are available if symptoms persist. Our pain management team uses the latest techniques to alleviate pain. Consultations can be provided during regular visits to the medical oncologist or by calling 855-235-7246. The consultation includes a complete pain assessment and treatment recommendations.
Cancer Rehabilitation Services
Our comprehensive cancer rehabilitation services, including physical therapy and lymphedema program, help patients who are recovering from the effects of cancer and its treatment. For more information, please call 215-481-2160.
Cancer Evaluation Services
A team of physicians regularly reviews cancer cases to share expertise across specialty disciplines. These free conferences review diagnostic studies and discuss treatment recommendations for patients as well as for community members seeking second opinions. Suggested options are then discussed with patients and family members. For information about having a thyroid cancer case evaluated, please contact Diane Anderson-Vance at 215-481-2827 or email@example.com.
