Getting a cancer diagnosis is scary and causes a roller coaster of emotions. Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Swedish Medical Center offers cutting-edge cancer (oncology) treatment, providing complete cancer care for the entire individual and creating a personalized plan that fits his/her needs.
We know that many patients, while dedicating themselves to their treatments, still want to define themselves outside the scope of their diseases. That is why our oncology team provides both scientific excellence and compassion that addresses the entire patient, not just his/her cancer.
Offering comprehensive treatment for all cancer types
Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Swedish Medical Center offers treatment for many cancers, with specialized programs for the following:
Delivering high-quality, cutting-edge cancer care
Each of our disease-specific programs meet standards of excellence to ensure the highest quality of care while offering the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options available.
Robotic surgery for cancer treatment
We stay on top of leading-edge technology to be able to provide the most progressive treatment possible. Our gynecologic oncology and prostate cancer programs both utilize the highly advanced, minimally invasive da Vinci® Surgical Robot for appropriate cases.
Robotic surgery is designed to provide surgeons with enhanced capabilities, including high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view and better control. This advanced technology allows the doctors to perform complex procedures through just a few tiny openings, resulting in:
- Less pain
- Less risk of infection
- Less blood loss and transfusions
- Less scarring
- Faster recovery
- Quicker return to normal activities
Ability to tackle the most challenging cancers
While all cancers present challenges for patients and medical providers, pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult to treat. Our Pancreatic Cancer Services are offered as a part of our Center for Diseases of the Liver and Pancreas. As a leader in services offered in Colorado, our center has dedicated physicians and staff committed to comprehensive care and treatment to all pancreatic cancer patients. Our Center provides the most advanced treatments and compassionate care to ensure that all of our patients achieve the best possible outcome.
Accredited cancer programs you can trust
Our programs offer participation in leading edge clinical trials and boast competitive patient outcomes. The Swedish Cancer Care Center has earned accreditation from the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) and Joint Commission, and is recognized by the American College of Surgeons as a Commission on Cancer-Approved Program for the many cancer types we treat and the number of specialists on staff to best diagnose and treat these cancers. Additionally, the Joint Commission recently awarded Swedish a Gold Seal in pancreatic and lung cancer care.
Multidisciplinary team of oncology experts
Advanced technology is critical to providing expert cancer treatment, but so are multidisciplinary conferences and nurse navigation to ensure the patient has a personalized treatment plan and is supported through every step of their cancer journey. We have a team of experts caring for you from first diagnosis to survivorship and ongoing surveillance to help monitor your health.
Our Swedish Cancer Care Center medical staff continues to grow by attracting top oncologists to our accredited program. Our board-certified physicians and highly experienced staff strive for excellence in continuing education, staying current on the latest treatment options and programs of care. Through weekly tumor board and case conference meetings, our multidisciplinary team offers the level of collaboration you expect from a major academic center, but provides it in a comfortable community hospital setting.
Cancer care focused on clinical excellence and positive patient outcomes
A diagnosis of cancer not only affects the individual but that person's family and support system as well. That is why the Swedish continuum of care includes significant integrative therapy options to help patients and their families lead as normal and comfortable lives as possible during treatment. Our experienced patient navigator helps our patients and their families make sense of their treatment plan and is a dedicated resource for them throughout the process.
Also, the Swedish Cancer Care Center is also affiliated with the Colorado Cancer Research Program as a consortium hospital, which offers access to national studies and the most advanced treatment protocols available.
