An integrative approach to cancer care
Evidence shows that cancer treatment is more effective with an integrative approach. That’s why cancer care at Gundersen has two layers. It blends conventional cancer treatment and supportive therapies. This combination of treatment attacks the disease while prioritizing your well-being. Whether you're receiving cancer care at our Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders in La Crosse or another Gundersen location closer to home, you can expect integrative care tailored to your needs.
Your care team will work with you to develop a personalized cancer treatment plan. Along with the type and stage of your cancer, they'll consider things like your age, your overall health and your personal preferences. Some people may receive just one type of treatment. Others may require a combination of treatments.
