The Best Technology to Help You Fight Cancer

Often, cancer treatment can seem even scarier than the diagnosis itself. But when you know what to expect, it can take a lot of anxiety out of the process. While treatment can be difficult, it is a relief to know you’re getting the best care possible.

ThedaCare Cancer Care offers the latest, most cutting-edge technology available for treating cancer patients, such as the da Vinci surgical robot and non-invasive CyberKnife® radiosurgery. And, because our services are offered in a community setting, you can expect a personalized level of care while working with some of the best doctors in the country.

Getting Treatment

There are three main areas of cancer treatment: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. ThedaCare Cancer Care provides services in all three. The type of treatment, or combination of treatments, you receive depends on the type of cancer you have, and what stage it’s in (which is determined during testing and diagnosis).

Find out what to expect during each type of treatment:

Surgery

This treatment involves removing a cancerous tumor or cancerous area of tissue from the body. Learn more about surgery

Chemotherapy

Using special medicine or drugs, chemotherapy works through the whole body to stop cancer growth and destroy cancer cells. Learn more about chemotherapy

Radiation Therapy

Through high-energy x-rays and radioactive materials, radiation shrinks tumors and cancer cells in a specific area of the body, with the goal of killing the cancer and preventing it from coming back. Learn more about radiation therapy
