Cancer Treatment Centers of America Has an Innovative Approach

Cancer Treatment Centers of America at first glance might seem like just another hospital that may look no different than any other from an outsider’s view. It is what the CTCA hospitals do that sets them apart. They treat cancer patients, and that is all they do. They specialize in nothing else, and their track record is remarkable.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America have facilities located in Philadelphia, Chicago, Tulsa, Phoenix, and Chicago. The concept of treating the whole patient and the family of the patient is paramount in the overall philosophy. Most people are not aware of the difficulty patients, and their families face when one of their members go through cancer treatment.

For example, 80 percent of adult cancer patients deal with the difficult situation of malnutrition, due to difficulties in being able to ear. Seven out of ten adult cancer patients suffer from a chronic fatigue condition. Very few cancer patients who are being treated in institutions receive any kind of spiritual help. Not only are the patients themselves affected, but the families must bear the burden as well, and the financial and emotional stresses can push families to the limit.

In addition to the familiar tradition cancer treatments of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, CTCA utilizes many alternative forms of treatment. These additional treatments are a part of the CTCA Integrated plan where an entire scope of treatment is meant to deal with all of the aspects of dealing with cancer in addition to just treating the disease.

Other methods used include Naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, family counseling, nutritional therapy, spiritual support, pain management, oncology rehabilitation, hormone therapy, hematologic oncology, mind-body medicine, immunotherapy, survivorship support, and many other similar remedies.

When it comes to treating cancer a whole person approach works best, and the proof is in the results that people receive. These results are published and readily available for the general public to see for themselves.
