Referrals & Appointments
Find a Specialist
When it comes to brain and spinal cord cancers, there's nothing simple about them. Multiple office visits to different specialists is the norm. And that can translate into time lost waiting for appointments when treatment should be underway.
At the Edward Cancer Center, our Neuro-Oncology Multidisciplinary Center speeds up treatment in an effective and convenient way by bringing expert cancer professionals from a variety of specialties together in one clinic setting.
Neuro-Oncology Individualized Patient Care
Each patient in our program meets with our multidisciplinary team of doctors at one time and in one location. These experts evaluate the patient's case and collaboratively come up with an individualized treatment plan. As a result, the patient leaves that same morning knowing what their treatment plan will entail and who will be involved in their care.
The team meets regularly with patients and keeps referring physicians informed of their patients' tests, treatments, and results in order to enhance communication and coordination of care.
Caring and supportive team members
Our highly specialized team prides themselves on giving patients the time and attention they deserve. Our multidisciplinary team includes medical and radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, advanced practice nurses, financial coordinators, social workers, a dietitian, and more. Each of our experts brings a unique perspective and experience to the table - an invaluable resource to patients.
We actively participate in clinical trials
The Edward Cancer Center has the most active cancer research program in DuPage County - offering the same quality of research found at university hospitals. Our patient enrollment is double the national average in oncology clinical trials.
