A cancer diagnosis is life-changing for patients and their loved ones. We understand how overwhelming it can be, which is why we strive to be more than just a medical team. We are an ally, working diligently to coordinate and advocate on our patients’ behalf from diagnosis through treatment and beyond. The following priorities will help unlock the full potential of our clinical services.

Providing World-Class Care Throughout the Region

At Jefferson, we envision a tightly connected constellation of satellite practices staffed by our fellowship-trained physicians and offering the latest robotic-surgery procedures and clinical trials. Our goal is to be present in neighborhoods across the Delaware Valley, giving patients access to world-class care right where they live. Through support like yours, we are revolutionizing the house call and developing an unprecedented capacity for face-to-face interaction.

Elevate the Standard of Care for a Growing Patient Base

Because of the rise in head and neck cancers in younger patients, we are now seeing patients in their 30s who are living longer in remission than ever before. As such, it is vital that we save life while preserving the functions that make life worth living.

Our skilled reconstructive surgeons partner with patients to understand their needs and help them determine the right course to achieve the best quality of life.

And the Neu Center for Supportive Medicine and Cancer Survivorship works with patients and their families throughout every stage of their cancer care to maximize quality of life and function across all domains, including but not limited to physical, social, emotional, work, home, and recreational activities.
