Medical Oncology treats cancer and blood disorders using chemotherapy or other medications, such as targeted therapy. Depending on the type of cancer, medical oncology may be the only treatment a patient needs – or it may be offered in close coordination with Erlanger’s surgical and/or radiation oncology therapies. Our goal is to advance compassionate, cutting-edge cancer care in our region, offering our patients a fast-changing array of new treatment tools. This includes the latest chemotherapies, ground-breaking immunotherapies and a broad range of clinical trials. As part of an academic health system, our oncologists are also actively involved in training the generation of physicians.
