For appointments and information, call 785-505-2800. Our services include:
Immunotherapy is available for patients with many different cancers. Doctors Jodi Palmer and Jodie Barr explain how cancer cells work and how immunotherapy reacts to effectively trigger the natural antibodies into action.
Bone Marrow Biopsy
A bone marrow biopsy removes a small amount of bone, and a small amount of fluid and cells from inside the bone, to find the reason for many blood disorders. It may be used to find out if cancer or infection has spread to the bone marrow.
The chaplains of LMH Health tend to the spiritual needs of our patients and caregivers. At LMH, a full-time, interfaith chaplain is on duty throughout the week, and on-call chaplains are available evenings and weekends.
Medical oncology focuses on treating and managing solid tumors with chemotherapy, immunotherapy and/or targeted therapy, often involving a coordinated approach with radiation oncologists and surgeons.
Hematology focuses on treating and managing blood diseases. Our board-certified hematologists treat a variety of bleeding and clotting abnormalities, disorders of abnormal blood counts, and blood cancers such as leukemia.
Genetic Testing and Counseling
The cancer risk assessment program at the LMH Health Oncology Center is designed to identify and inform patients at increased risk for cancer due to hereditary factors.
Growth Factor Support
Because anti-cancer drugs can interfere with the body's ability to make blood cells, some patients benefit from colony-stimulating factors. CSFs stimulate the production and maturation of white and red blood cells.
Lymphedema is fluid build-up that causes swelling. It is often caused by radiation therapy or lymph node removal. Qualified lymphedema specialists at LMH Health provide treatment and help patients manage lymphedema.
Nutrition and Dietary Support
Side effects from cancer treatment can cause weight loss and nutrient deficiencies, which weaken the body's ability to fight cancer. A registered dietitian is available at the LMH Health Oncology Center to help our patients with nutritional health management throughout treatment.
Radiation therapy delivers radiation to precise, targeted locations, a necessary treatment for many cancers. For our patients, radiation oncology services are provided next door at Lawrence Cancer Center.
Social Work and Support
Licensed, compassionate social workers at the LMH Health Oncology Center are experts at helping patients and families cope with cancer and overcome emotional and financial barriers during treatment.
Phlebotomy and Blood Transfusion
Phlebotomy is a procedure that removes iron-rich blood cells when excessive iron levels threaten serious organ and tissue damage. A blood transfusion is a medical treatment that replaces blood lost through injury, surgery or disease. Learn more about phlebotomy and blood transfusions.
Our board-certified oncologists participate in tumor conferences to collaboratively discuss cases and get simultaneous input from physicians across multiple specialties. The tumor conference setting brings together several expert opinions and facilitates a coordinated care plan.
