You often hear about “personalized care” in medicine. At the Lahey Health Cancer Institute (LHCI), this is our absolute goal. That’s because within each type of cancer, each patient’s cancer is biologically different. So there can’t be one single approach to treatment.
Focusing on You
We recognize that both you and your cancer are unique. We have sophisticated ways to determine the makeup of your specific cancer and how best to treat it. Then we match treatment options to your lifestyle and goals, and discuss the approach that’s best for you personally and therapeutically.
Partnering with you, and personalizing our care on all levels, is what Lahey Health is all about.
Because the Lahey Health system is made up of a number of facilities north of Boston – including in Burlington, Beverly, Danvers, Gloucester, Peabody, Winchester, and southern New Hampshire – you can have the expert cancer care you need at the location that’s most convenient for you.
Before you even begin treatment, your case is shared with teams of cancer experts who specialize in your type of cancer. Together they pool their knowledge and expertise to plan the approach that best meets your needs.
At LHCI, patient navigators will answer questions and guide you through treatment. We also offer care services such as acupuncture, massage, pet therapy, and support for your caregivers as well.
