Medical Oncology and Hematology
Medical Oncology and Hematology treats the full spectrum of cancer diagnoses using chemotherapy, biologic response modifiers, targeted therapies and immunotherapy. Supportive services provided for these treatments may include bone marrow biopsy, blood transfusions, hydration and nausea or pain management therapies.
Radiation Oncology provides a full range of external beam radiation for all adult malignancies, some adolescent malignancies, and select benign conditions. The Cancer Center is home to the only TomoTherapy® unit in Brown, Calumet, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan counties. TomoTherapy is a cutting-edge technology designed to effectively treat hard-to-reach and complex tumors by delivering exact, intense radiation. It precisely targets the tumor from all angles allowing higher doses of radiation to be given to the tumor while reducing the radiation exposure of healthy tissue. CT imaging is used to guide treatment.
Surgical Services are one of the primary methods used in cancer diagnosis and treatment. HFM has a comprehensive surgical department that is equipped to perform newer cancer procedures, including sentinel node mapping and biopsy and stereotactic breast biopsies.
Cancer Registry helps assess and control the impact of cancer within the community. Screenings for breast, prostate and skin cancer are offered yearly for the general public. Call 920-320-2749 for more information.
