Because of the number of patients that we help, our staff members are experts, similar in many ways to people who work in high-volume, large academic medical centers. Their expertise means that our patients can sometimes surpass the national survival rates reported by the National Cancer Data Base.
The Sentara Cancer Network specialists, from surgeons and radiologists to genetic counselors and oncology certified nurses, work together in teams. They share information about individual cases, gather innovative recommendations for care and ensure all options are considered. Instead of just one doctor, you will have a handful of health professionals working to make you well again.
