As a patient of the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, you receive care from expert physicians who use the most innovative approaches to treating breast cancer. We diagnose and treat breast cancer as minimally invasively to your body as we can, saving as much breast tissue as safely possible. And with the strength of our vigorous research programs, you have access to effective new clinical trials and therapies.
Our cancer care team coordinates your personalized treatment plan every step of the way, supporting your challenges, keeping your spirits up, listening to your concerns and strengthening your overall wellbeing.
Why the Cancer Institute?
Our nationally distinguished doctors use the most sophisticated technology to find breast abnormalities at their earliest stages. When breast cancer is detected, we offer some of the most effective and cutting-edge treatments available anywhere. Our oncology specialists include surgical oncologists (doctors who remove cancer through surgery), radiation oncologists (doctors who use radiation to treat cancer), medical oncologists (doctors who use specialized drugs to treat cancer), and radiologists (doctors who use imaging to diagnose cancer).
Progressive clinical trials and research
Our scientists and physicians continually research new treatments and cures that allow us to bring medical discoveries from the laboratory directly to you. These breakthroughs help us to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Because we are home to the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) – the world’s largest breast cancer clinical trials group – we can give you direct access to the work of more than 5,000 breast cancer researchers across the country.
We provide extensive cancer care at our seven hospitals and more than 40 Cancer Institute locations nestled within many western Pennsylvania communities, as well as in Erie, West Virginia and Ohio. This vast network allows us to give you exceptional cancer care and the comfort, security and convenience of being close to home.
