Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Golubeva-Ganeles "Personalized cancer treatment is a delivery of the right treatment based on the characteristics of the tumor genetics as well as on individual genetics of each patient. It allows precise "targeting" in choosing the drug which specifically kills the cancer cells sparing healthy cells in the body of the patient. By use "precise" treatment, we are not only killing tumor cells but avoiding toxic side effects for the patient."
