This comprehensive, multi-specialty team approach to diagnosis, treatment and follow-up ensures that the most up-to-date options and recommendations are offered to patients in a timely and coordinated way.
As the primary teaching hospital for Boston University School of Medicine we provide exceptional patient care and conduct innovative research to find new and better ways to treat and cure disease. Whether a treatment plan includes surgery, medical oncology or radiation, our patients have access to an extensive roster of research and clinical trials. Study protocols are being conducted for cancers of the breast, lung, colon, prostate, head and neck, blood cells (leukemia and lymphoma) and more.
Patients at Boston Medical Center can access a wide range of support services. Our programs include counseling, support groups, nutrition classes and complimentary medicine such as acupuncture and massage – all designed to ease the stress of cancer treatment.
