The average person just does not realize all of the trials and tribulations that people who are suffering from cancer have to go through. It is not just the after effects of some of the medicine and treatments that they have to go through, but the emotional, family, and other issues that have to be dealt with as well.
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America, it is believed that everyone is unique in the way that they deal with having cancer and each patient is entitled to an approach that fits their individual situation requires. Each cancer patient is assigned a team of doctors and specialists that fit the situation.
Since treating cancer at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is the only thing that they do, they can deliver the expert care to the individual that fits the need. Some people have very high-level emotional needs to take care of so there is more emphasis in that area, and others have nutritional issues, so the emphasis is put into that category.
Just about 80 percent of all cancer patients suffer from malnutrition, and 70 percent are in a state of chronic fatigue, and yet many traditional cancer treatment facilities do not address issues like these apart from the conventional remedies of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.
At the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, an Integrative Care Model is utilized which consists of the more traditional methods of care, coupled with additional treatments that cover all other issues that the patients and families encounter. Surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy and other traditional therapies are used.
Also, such individual therapies as need are added such as hormone therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, mind-body medicine, oncology rehabilitation, genetics, pain management, spiritual support, psychological support, naturopathic medicine, family psychological support and other such means are used for more extensive and all around treatment.
