At Lipson Cancer Institute, we understand that caring for cancer goes beyond just the treatment – there are physical, emotional, and financial aspects that come with it. That’s why we see deeper than a patient’s diagnosis and offer a range of specialized programs that help treat the mind, body, and soul before, during, and after cancer.
Integrated care services are used as a supplement to traditional therapies like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. These therapies are designed to alleviate disease or treatment side-effects including pain, stress and anxiety, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, gastrointestinal issues, and neuropathy. These services are a regular part of your care plan and are provided in collaboration with your medical team.
The goal of our support services is to help you navigate this challenging time and make your treatment and follow-up care as comfortable and successful as possible. For more information on any of the support services listed below, please call 585.922.4020.
