Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cobleigh We were part of the original group of investigators looking at a new treatment for breast cancer called Herceptin. And we were dealing with some patients who were extremely ill who got better right before our eyes. And that was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life in medicine. That medication was approved about 10 years ago, and now it's part of the standard of care for breast cancer. And Rush was right in on the ground floor. It's pretty neat to be taking a chance on a new treatment strategy not involving chemotherapy, surgery or radiation. We like the idea of using the patient's own immune system to help fight her cancer, and we watch tumors basically melt away over a period of a week or two.

I would recommend Dr. Cobleigh and her coworkers to anyone! I am a 15 year survivor and can honestly say that Dr. Cobleigh saved my life.
