Within those three days, you will:
  • Meet with your team of cancer care specialists
  • Get answers to your important questions
  • Learn about your treatment options
  • Develop your individualized treatment plan

Tanner offers the latest in preventative screening and cancer treatment. Our expert team and advanced facilities are here to give you the professional care and resources you need to fight cancer and live a healthy life.

Our approach

Tanner’s cancer care program, which is accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (CoC), is among the top cancer treatment programs in the nation. We blend the latest medical technology with nutritional navigation, emotional guidance and spiritual support to support each patient from initial diagnosis through remission and recovery. 

Your cancer care team will work together with one goal: to help you conquer cancer and live a healthy life.

  • Diagnosis
    A definitive cancer diagnosis usually requires the opinion of a pathologist, a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis of cancer and other diseases. Your diagnosis will usually include an examination of a tissue sample. Most cancers can be treated – and many cured – depending on the specific type, location and stage of progression.

  • Treatment
    Once diagnosed, your cancer care team may treat your cancer with a combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Many people continue to work full-time while undergoing treatment. We recommend that you continue any daily activities that you feel able to do, depending on your symptoms and whether you are taking certain pain medications. Learn more about your individualized treatment options.

Your cancer care team

Fighting cancer takes a team approach, which is why your treatment will be led by a multidisciplinary team of cancer care specialists, who are experienced in:

  • Surgery
  • Oncology
  • Hematology
  • Radiology
  • Nutrition
  • Rehabilitation
  • Nursing
  • And more

Your care team will work closely with you to develop a personalized care plan, which will incorporate the latest therapies and technologies for cancer treatment. We are here to fight by your side and support you with personalized, compassionate care, every step of the way.
