Our team of expert pathologists in anatomic pathology evaluate tissue and organ samples at both the molecular and cellular level to identify specific characteristics and council clinicians on treatment options.
As part of the treatment, we offer radiation therapy, which involves precisely controlled beams of high-energy radiation that destroy cancer cells.
Chemotherapy is a drug taken by mouth or through your vein to treat cancer by interfering with the growth of cells that cause the disease. Some treatments can also affect normal cell growth, which is why some patients may experience side effects.
Surgery often is an integral part of a cancer treatment plan. With groundbreaking research and a team of highly skilled and specialized surgeons, surgery can offer the greatest chances of a successful outcome at KIMS.
