The multidisciplinary cancer treatment programs at the CU Cancer Center at University of Colorado Hospital in metro Denver are acknowledged as some of the best in the United States.
Specialists who really specialize
Unlike other hospitals that have general radiation oncologists, our radiation oncologists specialize in certain cancers. This means that your radiation oncologist has extensive experience in your particular kind of cancer—and more experience often leads to better outcomes.
Moreover, many of our specialists serve on the national committees that set the standards of care – and they bring that deep expertise to their patients at UCHeath.
Your radiation oncologist at the CU Cancer Center will work in tandem with all of your cancer doctors to make sure you are receiving appropriate care. He or she will attend weekly meetings to discuss your case and make sure you are on track, and keep your primary care physician briefed about your care and progress.
