More than 30 oncology physicians and a full complement of oncology professionals are on staff to serve the patients at the Lynn Cancer Institute. Our patients receive treatment and services from specialists in genetics, surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology and imaging. In addition, our staff includes research nurses, who improve patient access to clinical trials and the most advanced forms of treatment.
A unique approach at the Lynn Cancer Institute is our multimodality care. Each multimodality team is comprised of physicians and healthcare professionals who specialize in a specific site of cancer. The team is able to develop standards of care for the specific disease site it treats. These standards reflect the most advanced technology and current treatments available.
This simplifies the entire process for our patients, from diagnosis and treatment, to Wellness and Survivorship programs and allows our patients to focus on one thing — recovery.
Our renowned cancer professionals work together across multiple specialties to provide you with advanced cancer screenings, diagnostics and personalized care.
