Oncology

Innovative medications, new treatment regimens and advanced technologies are bringing a realistic hope of a cure for cancer to so many. DuPage Medical Group Oncology is at the forefront of these new developments, enabling the identification of cancers in the early stages and helping you fight cancer at any stage. Throughout your treatment, you will work with a Nurse Navigator—a personal advocate who helps you stay informed of your treatment options and develop your personal roadmap to recovery. As a patient of DMG, you can be assured that you have a team of doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals behind you every step of the way.

Multi-Specialty Cancer Appointments

Multi-specialty appointments are available for patients diagnosed with genitourinary cancers, including those of the bladder, kidneys, prostate or testes, who are considering radiation therapy and/or other medical or surgical treatments. During the appointment, patients are able to meet with multiple providers, which can include a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, urologist and a nurse navigator, all within a single visit.

This allows members of your care team to collaborate with one another, review the available treatment options with you, in real-time to develop a care plan tailored to you. Receiving input from multiple oncology experts and having all of your questions addressed enables you to feel as prepared and well-informed about your treatment plan as possible.

 

For those with prostate cancer who are considering radiation therapy, multi-specialty appointments are offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays at our Lisle Medical Office Building

Individuals who have been diagnosed with an advanced genitourinary cancer, including those of the bladder, kidneys, prostate or testes, who are considering chemotherapy or other medical oncology treatment options, multi-specialty appointments are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at our Hinsdale and Lisle Medical Office buildings.

To learn more about multi-specialty appointments, or to find out if you are a candidate for this service, please contact our Urology department.
