Cancer Care

Lawrence General Hospital’s cancer treatment team works with doctors from Dana Farber Cancer Institute to help you leverage the tools you need to be a survivor. Cancer is a scary word, but science has given us many tools in the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer, and today we are effectively treating and even curing cancer right here in the Merrimack Valley. So, take a breath, gather your team around you, and let’s beat it together.

Lawrence General has earned approval as a Community Cancer Program by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. That means our program staff is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality of cancer care through a disciplined, dedicated, totality of care approach. Your team includes skilled cancer nurses, therapists, dieticians, social workers, pharmacists, lab technicians and physicians (oncologists, surgeons, neurosurgeons, urologists, ear nose and throat specialists and others).

The team draws on advanced treatment modalities like the latest chemotherapy, chemoembolization, interventional radiology and radio frequency embolization. Physicians from Dana-Farber Community Cancer Care provide medical direction and care as a part of that team at Lawrence General.
