For a diagnosis that involves a blood-related cancer or an organ-specific tumor such as breast, prostate, lung or colorectal cancer, we provide access to the newest and most effective treatment regimens/drugs on the market to help control the growth of cancer. Each drug fights cancer cells in different ways.
Chemotherapy is perhaps the most commonly known method of treatment and can be used alone or in combination with surgery and/or radiation. It can be administered by a pill (orally), intravenously or by injection. We provide these services at Vista East in our infusion suite designed to provide a comfortable, pleasant and safe setting for delivery of chemotherapy and other infusions. Also, many types of full infusion services are available in Gurnee at Oncology Hematology Associates of Northern Illinois.
Hematology is the medical specialty that deals with malignant and nonmalignant diseases of the blood. Medical oncology and hematology make up a combined unit of our cancer program. Through our comprehensive program, Vista's professionals treat acute and chronic types of leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphomas, multiple myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes and all other hematologic disorders.
