Care Philosophy

Dr. Edgar Staren, Senior Vice President for Clinical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) joined the organization in 2005. A practicing surgical oncologist, he embraces the integrative model of care delivered to patients at CTCA. CTCA has a unique model for treating patients with cancer. You must have highly trained, highly qualified healthcare professionals that are knowledgeable in state-of-the-art traditional medicine. You certainly need to have complimentary medicine that's scientifically based, and we believe firmly that the combination of those two in what's referred to as integrative medicine is the optimal comprehensive cancer care. Of utmost importance to Dr. Staren is ensuring that patients are informed and educated about their disease and its treatment. Patients want to feel empowered. They don t want to have loss of control that ends up so often being associated with a diagnosis of cancer. It s our obligation to bring information to the patient in terms they understand so that they can then make a rational, intelligent decision on how they want to be treated. Prior to joining CTCA, Dr. Staren was Senior Attending Surgeon at the Medical College Hospital in Toledo, Ohio, as well as Attending Surgeon at both St. Luke s Hospital and St. Vincent Mercury Medical Center. Making the move to CTCA was a decision based largely on the organization s commitment to the patient. I looked to an organization that truly put the patient first, recognized that they were going to need to treat patients like you treat a family member, and did so with an integrated model that combined the state-of-the-art traditional care with scientifically based complimentary care. The only place I was able to find that type of a setting was at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.Read more
