Wayne Health cancer specialists are dedicated to the prevention, early detection, treatment and eventual eradication of cancer. We collaborate with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute as leaders in integrating the work of oncology physicians, researchers and educators into programs that advance knowledge of cancer. We are known for excellence in patient care, for groundbreaking research funded by the National Institutes of Health, foundations or industry partners, for establishing new standards of clinical care, and for multidisciplinary, collaborative research with other institutions.
We also offer “whole-person” care, tailored to the needs of individual patients. This means we take the time to listen to you and understand your individual needs. We treat you with the utmost empathy and respect.
The physicians and providers of Wayne Health treat some of the most complex cancer patients in the state. When selecting a Wayne Health cancer specialist, patients take comfort in knowing that they are receiving care from a highly experienced doctor with advanced medical training and access to the latest research knowledge. Wayne Health cancer specialists practice at The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute , a renowned, National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center headquartered in metropolitan Detroit and affiliated with Wayne State University School of Medicine.
Wayne Health specialists at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute are health care innovators who can offer patients a full range of the latest treatment options, including:
Systemic therapies are medications or interventions that combat cancer throughout the body.
Wayne Health physicians and researchers are faculty members of Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic, translational and clinical research and who practice at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. This gives you access to the latest advancements in cancer diagnosis, treatment and prevention through clinical trials, sooner than other providers without a medical school or comprehensive cancer center affiliation.
