- Cancer Screening
Prevention and early cancer detection saves lives. That’s why the team at AdventHealth Ottawa, formerly Ransom Memorial Health, prioritizes keeping you well by offering annual recommended screenings to help you stay ahead of a potential diagnosis.
Regular cancer screenings can be lifesaving, especially for patients who are at higher risk of a particular cancer based on family history or lifestyle factors.
Since cancer is most treatable when caught early, it’s important to consider these tests with the guidance of your doctor. Colonoscopy, mammography, prostate screening, lung screening, pap tests and HPV tests are examples of proven ways to help you safeguard your health.
- Medical Oncology
The expert medical oncology team at our hospital in Ottawa, Kansas, specializes in drug and biologic therapy to treat cancer. These cancer treatments can include:
- Chemotherapy, powerful medications to kill fast-growing cells in your body
- Immunotherapy, medicine that causes the immune system to fight back
- Targeted therapy, to attack certain genetic mutations and cellular pathways that help cancer cells grow
- Surgical Oncology
Surgery is often used to diagnose and treat cancer. During cancer treatment surgery, we’ll do all we can to remove cancer cells, including the affected organs or tissues to promote the best possible outcomes and protect your health.
- Radiation Oncology
Radiation therapy can sometimes stop or slow the growth of a tumor using high-energy waves to destroy the cancer without affecting too many of your healthy cells. The expert oncology team at AdventHealth Ottawa can help you decide if radiation is the right treatment for your cancer.
- Rehabilitation and Support Services
The compassionate team at our Ottawa hospital is here to guide you back to whole health. After your cancer treatment, rehabilitation and support services can help you manage side effects, develop healthy eating habits, regain your strength and heal your spirit.
