Cancer Care Play

In this video series, oncologists describe the multidisciplinary team approach to cancer treatment at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and patients share their experiences receiving treatment.

Our cancer program is unmatched in the Chicago area. It is one of only two programs in Illinois designated by the National Cancer Institute as an official Comprehensive Cancer Center. U.S.News & World Report consistently ranks the University of Chicago Medical Center's cancer program among the top in the nation and the highest in Illinois.

We have more than 150 cancer specialists. With so many physicians, our cancer care expertise ranges from the most common--such as breast, prostate, and colon cancer--to less common cancers--including osteogenic sarcoma, hairy cell leukemia and mesothelioma.

A multidisciplinary team of medical oncologists, radiation therapists, surgical oncologists, and others meet to discuss each patient's case. After considering the patient's lifestyle, our experts recommend individualized treatment plans.

Our team also includes cancer geneticists who offer cancer risk assessment and risk reduction plans to patients and their families. These experts study genes with the goal of preventing cancer or finding it before it becomes incurable.
