Cancer Treatment Centers of America are the leaders in innovative cancer treatment. A for-profit hospital, Cancer Treatment Centers of America use the latest technology. Cancer experts deliver quality care that saves lives. Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® is located in the Southeastern Regional Medical Center south of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Cancer Treatment Centers of America uses a combination of conventional treatments as well as integrative therapies. CTCA uses surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy to treat cancer. There are other therapies such as homeopathy, in place for side effects such as pain, nausea, fatigue, lymphedema, malnutrition, and anxiety.
Integrative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, mind-body medicine, naturopathic medicine, nutrition therapy, oncology rehabilitation, pain management, and spiritual support are also used. Acupuncture comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It treats dry mouth, and hot flashes. Chiropractic care can treat headaches, as well as immobility. Mind-body medicine is useful to use on anxiety/stress, and body image problems. Naturopathic medicine works on immune function, while providing relief for digestive issues and fatigue. Nutrition therapy works on digestive issues as well as dry mouth. Oncology rehabilitation is defined as treating anxiety and stress along with balance. Pain Management can help digestive issues, as well as eating difficulties. Spiritual support is used on anxiety/stress and insomnia.
Contrast the integrative therapies with conventional Western medicine, which provides chemotherapy to slow cancer growth as well as genomic testing to test the tumor at the cellular level to understand the complex nature of the patient’s cancer. Hormone therapy adds or blocks or removes hormones to stop or slow the cancer cells’ growth. Cancer sometimes needs to be removed by stimulating the immune system to attack cancer cells by giving antibodies or other tools to combat it. Radiation therapy uses x-rays or radioactive substances to target errant cancer cells and destroy them. Surgery merely removes the tumor. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America, hard work ensures that patients survive their ordeal with cancer.
