The Seidman Difference
The University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Difference
Our doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating cancer, from the most common to the very rare. Our sole focus is cancer. We have dedicated a 120-bed hospital and 16 locations to patients with cancer. Our cancer doctors see more than 10,000 patients a year. We know cancer and we will know you, too.
UH Seidman Cancer Center offers many benefits:
- Expertise: Our doctors know cancer inside and out. They studied it, fought it and beat it. Thousands of people count on us to help them with their cancer diagnosis and treatment.
- Latest in clinical advancements: The newest techniques to diagnose and treat cancer, including clinical trials, the newest drugs available, and state of the art technology – many only available in Northeast Ohio and only at UH Seidman Cancer Center. We are on the leading edge of genetic tumor testing. We can determine the unique “fingerprint” a tumor has and offer very specific medicine to fight that tumor.
- A patient and family approach to care: Cancer care is more than medicine. It is about understanding the patient and family needs. Every visit starts with compassionate care, from your first appointment through survivorship. We offer support such as counseling, pain management, nutrition, group support, art therapies, music therapies and much more.
- Most importantly, we are your team: Our patients’ cases are discussed in a meeting with all the team physicians, nurses, social workers, and others to evaluate your type of cancer and the best possible treatment options for your type of cancer. With this team, you have your second and third opinions all discussed. We work with you to discuss your options and help you make the decision that meets your care goals.
