The world-renowned experts at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) are transforming the way cancers are prevented, detected, treated and cured.
Cancer is complex and is no longer solely defined by location or even by stage—there is no routine cancer. Each patient’s cancer is biologically different and reacts differently to treatments designed to stop it.
At the OSUCCC – James, our mission is to provide the highest level of compassionate, discreet and respectful service, all through a single point of access.
To deliver the most effective cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment, our experts work to identify and understand cancer at the molecular level, unlocking the genetic code of each patient’s cancer, pinpointing what makes it grow and discovering what stops it.
Our internationally recognized teams of cancer specialists and subspecialists span a broad range of disciplines: from medical, surgical and radiation oncologists to molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more - all specializing in cancer research, prevention, detection, treatment and cures. In fact, our physician experts help write the national clinical guidelines for treating specific cancers.
That subspecialization and singular focus enable us to discover, develop and deliver the most targeted therapies for each patient, leading to improved outcomes, faster responses, fewer side effects and more hope for cancer patients everywhere.
