The first step in cancer care is making an accurate diagnosis. Our
board-certified pathologists offer diagnoses of malignant diseases
within 24 hours of a biopsy. The surgical pathology report also helps to
determine the best course of treatment.
With more than 60 surgeons in multiple specialties on staff, DCH
Regional Medical Center contributes greatly to patient care with
services ranging from diagnosis to resection of the diseased tissue. A
variety of supportive treatment and reconstructive options are also
available, and a convenient, same-day surgery unit is on site.
Directed by a certified American Academy of Pain Management physician,
the team at the DCH SpineCare Center offers a cost-effective plan to
manage cancer pain, restoring patients to work and enjoyment of life.
Specialized care includes physical therapy and a consulting psychologist
trained in pain management. Treating pain effectively allows
improvement in overall patient management and care.
DCH Rehabilitation Services works with the Manderson Cancer Center to
return individuals to their status before cancer, or assist the patient
with adaptation to any functional disability. Located at both the DCH
Regional Medical Center and Northport Medical Center campuses, DCH
Rehabilitation Services offers patients a wide range of services
including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and hearing
in the inpatient, acute care, home health or outpatient environments. We
also offer a specialized lymphadema program for patients experiencing
problems with edema and pain following surgery. These services offer
many of our patients the ability to perform daily living tasks with or
without assistance, and the joy of regaining as much of their
independence as possible.
The Enterostomal Therapy Department at DCH Regional Medical Center was
established in the early 1980s. Several of our registered nurses have
specialized training in the care of patients with skin, ostomy, wound
and incontinence care needs. Because cancer can affect every body
system, these professionals are frequently called upon to assist with
the care of patients with cancer.
