Clinical Services

The world-renowned experts at the OSUCCC – James are transforming the way cancers are prevented, detected and treated.

Today, cancer is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage. We know there is no routine cancer, and that each cancer is a highly complex disease, behaving differently in the bodies it’s in and calling for a tailored, individualized treatment plan for each patient.

To deliver the most effective cancer detection and treatment, our nationally renowned experts identify and understand cancer at the biologic and genetic levels, unlocking the molecular code of a patient’s disease and pinpointing what makes each cancer grow — then discovering what stops it.

The OSUCCC – James Cancer Clinical Services include a number of different care and treatment areas, and our subspecialists span a broad range of disciplines: from medical oncologists, hematologists, surgical oncologists and radiation oncologists to molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists to physical therapists and more — all specializing in one specific cancer (and only that cancer) and its research, prevention, detection, treatment and cure.  

It’s that subspecialization and singular focus that enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each individual cancer patient.

And that means our collective expertise leads to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.
