Advanced, Personalized Care with a Broad Reach
At MCC, care is highly personalized and backed by a network of expertise that spans the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. This network is a result of the close collaboration and consultation of our physicians, who continually work with doctors, hospitals, universities and policy institutes to promote research and advance a model of effective, compassionate care. The Mayo Clinic, the National Cancer Institute and the American Society of Clinical Oncology regularly call on MCC for insights on the latest clinical research and innovations in patient care.
Medical oncologists use a variety of techniques to combat cancer, including hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, biologics and targeted therapies. The treatments medical oncologists use are usually systemic, meaning that they not only target the primary tumor but also its metastases.
Radiation oncologists use radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Radiation treatments can be used before surgery to make tumors easier to remove, or afterwards, to ensure no cancer cells are left behind.
Hematologists study, diagnose, treat and prevent blood diseases. This specialty involves treating disorders that affect the production of blood and its components such as blood cells, bone marrow, lymph nodes and clot formation.
