Cancer Care

We know that others may claim to be leading the fight against cancer but we truly are. The Karmanos Cancer Institute is committed to being at the forefront of cancer treatment – always a step ahead. From ground-breaking original research to offering the most up-to-date treatment options, our expert team offers tomorrow’s standard of care today.

We understand that cancer is a complex disease that demands complex care. We provide each patient with a dynamic, carefully constructed treatment plan focused on their specific cancer and their unique needs. We listen to our patients and then design a plan that deals with them in a respectful, compassionate manner, and is responsive to their emotional and practical concerns.
