At Wellstar, we treat more than patients. We treat people—friends, family, neighbors—who are wholly unique. That’s why our cancer specialists never use a “one-size-fits-all” approach when it comes to your care.
As soon as you are diagnosed with cancer, we provide expert and tailored care that can make all the difference in your treatment and recovery. Our multidisciplinary oncology teams rely on the latest research, innovative treatments and world-class technology to target tumors with precision.
No matter your diagnosis or stage of disease, our cancer experts can create the best and most effective treatment plan for you.
Expert, Personalized Cancer Care
Our dedicated oncology team includes board-certified oncology physicians and surgeons, nurse navigators, registered dietitians and genetic specialists, who are ready to fight alongside you at the first signs of cancer.
Whether you live in the metro Atlanta or West Georgia area, Wellstar makes it easy to find expert care. We have specialized cancer treatment centers close to home, including the newly-renovated Enoch Callaway Cancer Center at Wellstar West Georgia Medical Center and Specialty Teams and Treatment (STAT) Clinics at Wellstar Cobb Hospital, Wellstar Kennestone Hospital and Wellstar North Fulton Hospital.
Here, patients get a customized care plan for their unique cancer diagnosis quickly, instead of waiting weeks or months for treatment.
At the STAT Clinics, each patient has a face-to-face meeting with their oncology team on one day, at one appointment. This multidisciplinary approach helps you get the right treatment for your unique diagnosis as soon as possible.
Access to cutting-edge care
Wellstar offers a wide range of advanced and minimally-invasive treatment options, such as:
- Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT): During this procedure, a one-time, concentrated dosage of radiation is administered during surgery. That means patients like Nan Harman-Dempsey can finish their radiation in mere minutes, instead of weeks of follow-up appointments.
- Stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR): Using targeted beams of radiation, radiation oncologists can virtually cut out tumors without ever making an incision. This treatment can be crucial for people like John Cashen, who have cancer in more complicated areas in the body like the lungs.
- CyberKnife robotic surgery: This state-of-the-art treatment delivers precise, high-dose radiation to tumors, while also protecting healthy tissues in the body.
- Integrated therapies: Alongside conventional treatment methods, physicians may suggest other therapies—including acupuncture, yoga and meditation—to promote relaxation and improve quality of life.
As part of the Mayo Clinic Care network, your trusted Wellstar doctors can combine their understanding of your unique medical needs with Mayo Clinic expertise so that you get exactly the care you need, close to home.
Whether you have just been diagnosed with cancer or are looking for a second opinion, Wellstar’s expert oncology team can help you get back to life faster.
