We offer advanced cancer treatments throughout Indiana for your convenience. Our highly skilled physicians work with you to develop the most effective treatment plan.

We offer the following cancer services at IU Health Paoli Hospital:

  • Surgery. Surgery is the first line of treatment for many cancers.
  • Cancer education. Learning more about your condition and treatments can help you manage your cancer.
  • Cancer support groups. At our support groups, you can speak with other patients who are receiving or have received cancer treatment.
  • Sentinel node biopsy. Sentinel node biopsies help determine if cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
  • Visiting specialist services. Many different specialists may be involved in your cancer care depending on what type of cancer you have. Through our visiting specialists services, specialists in the study of tumors (cancer) and the treatment of anemia and other blood disorders are scheduled regularly to facilitate patient needs.
