Services offered at Adena Cancer Center in Chillicothe, Ohio, include:
- Diagnostic Services: If cancer is suspected, Adena Cancer Center can perform tests necessary to diagnose the type of cancer, as well as stage and grade. Stage and grade, along with personal health history, are key to developing the optimal treatment plan.
- Surgery: Removing cancerous tumors is one of the frontline treatments for many cancers. Our surgeons, and OR teams, have vast experience in this field.
- Non-surgical Treatments: Adena Cancer Center offers the latest in all types of medical therapies, including chemotherapy, biological, and hormone therapies.
- Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy uses a high-energy beam to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. By damaging the DNA of cells in its path, radiation can stop cancer from growing and multiplying. IMRT and external beam radiation are available at Adena Cancer Center.
- Patient navigators: Navigators help patients and their families navigate the often-complex journey through cancer treatment from diagnosis to survivorship. These navigators are the “go-to” experts for questions about appointments, treatments, resources, and other needs.
- SAVI: SAVI is a breast radiation device that is inserted into the lumpectomy cavity to reduce the time needed for radiation treatment for some breast cancer patients. Traditional radiation is given in 30 treatments, whereas SAVI patients come in two times a day for five consecutive days.
- Cancer clinical trials: Access to new medications is available through ongoing clinical trials for a range of cancers, including breast, colorectal, lung, head and neck, prostate, kidney, pancreatic, and skin.
