Colorectal Cancer Treatment
Collaborative Approach to Cancer Care
When you come to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, we take a collaborative,
interdisciplinary approach to diagnosing, drafting a treatment plan, caring
for, and treating patients with colorectal cancer. Our gastrointestinal
cancer team is equipped with advanced technology, personalized support
services, physician expertise, and much more. Our goal and vision is to
decrease the rate of advanced stage colon cancer by increasing community
awareness of our GI cancer program and increasing the access to clinical
trials available to our patients here at PVHMC.
We have shaped our GI cancer program around the standards set down by the
National Cancer Care Network, the American Cancer Society, American Gastroenterological
Association, and Radiological Society of North America, adhering to their
guidelines to ensure our patients are receiving the best possible cancer care.
What Makes Our Program Stand Out?
PVHMC has established a comprehensive and multidisciplinary program designed
to fight colorectal cancer in Pomona and surrounding communities. Our
program is rooted in cutting-edge technology, patient-centered support
services, and a team of the leading professionals in gastrointestinal,
cancer, radiology, and primary care.
Other benefits offered in our program:
- CT Colonography (virtual colonoscopy)
- GI lab with state-of-the-art equipment and technology
- Trilogy with RapidArc
- TomoTherapy for ultra-precision radiation
- Specially trained gastroenterologists and surgeons
- Personalized care and treatment plans
- Non-invasive capsule endoscopy-PillCam™
- Patient care coordinator
