There are over 16.9 million cancer survivors living in the United States today. That’s the good news. But managing the health care needs of cancer survivors can be complex, and requires a coordinated approach to care. At Hunterdon Healthcare, we combine the expertise of both primary care and specialty providers to improve the overall health and well-being of cancer survivors. We implement strategies to avoid, minimize or manage the physical, psychosocial, cognitive, and emotional issues some patients face during and after their cancer treatment, and provide resources to help patients adopt or maintain a healthy lifestyle.
A dedicated cardio-oncology clinic allows cancer patients and survivors to be screened and, when needed, treated for specific cardiac diseases associated with their cancer and/or treatment. Using state-of-the-art 3-D technology, specially trained cardiologists can prevent, reduce, and possibly even reverse the cardiac damage. For more information call 908-788-1710.
