Early detection often translates to higher survival rates and fewer side effects. Through sophisticated diagnostic technology and pathology, cancer specialists can detect many cancers and risks before they grow and spread. Our affiliates at the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Breast Center offer digital mammography at three Lawrence locations and a variety of routine cancer screenings are available at LMH's affiliated primary care practices.
Together, we're making sure our community has access to a comprehensive range of cancer screening and prevention tools. LMH Oncology Center shares the American Cancer Society's guidelines for early detection of cancer.
Cancer Clinical Trials
In addition to standard cancer treatment options like chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, transfusions and more, LMH Oncology Center offers over 150 clinical trials for cancer patients?more than any other hospital or medical center in the region. Our clinical trials are all approved by the National Cancer Institute.
For patients, clinical trials mean local access to investigational therapies not available at all regional cancer care centers. They offer hope to those seeking cancer treatments beyond standard therapy?treatments that may be less toxic, more beneficial and/or easier to maintain.
As a member of the Midwest Cancer Alliance, we now offer more advanced clinical trials than ever before. It?s all part of our long-standing commitment to improving cancer care throughout Kansas and the entire Midwest.
