Duke Raleigh Cancer Center Offers Full Array of Care in Renovated Clinic
Duke Raleigh Cancer Center continues to expand services available to patients with cancer in Raleigh, North Carolina, and surrounding areas in a newly-renovated clinic which opened this summer. Duke Raleigh Cancer Center is a part of Duke Raleigh Hospital, a 186-bed hospital in north Raleigh owned and operated by Duke University Health System.
The clinic now consolidates all hematology/oncology services in one location and includes two new private infusion rooms and the new Duke Raleigh Gardens. Medical and radiation oncologists provide multidisciplinary care to patients with cancer of the breast, lung, prostate, skin, and gastrointestinal tract, gynecologic cancers, and leukemias, and lymphomas in the 22,400-square-foot center.
Carol Hahn, MD, believes that the Duke Raleigh Cancer Center's strong ties to Duke are an enormous benefit to patients. Hahn has been the chief of radiation oncology at Duke Raleigh since 2006 and has been on the Duke faculty for 15 years. "We're bringing all the expertise and clinical research at Duke to the Wake County campus," she says.
At Duke Raleigh Cancer Center, patients can participate in clinical trials testing the newest therapies, and can receive chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Surgical oncologists at Duke Raleigh Cancer Center specialize in the most advanced and minimally invasive procedures.
Screening and diagnostic tests including mammography are offered at the center as well. Duke Raleigh Cancer Center is home to the area's first state-of-the-art endoscopic ultrasound facility. This minimally invasive technique provides highly accurate evaluation of upper gastrointestinal tract, abdominal, and pulmonary tumors. Stereotactic breast biopsy for precise evaluation of possible breast tumors, as well as nuclear medicine imaging technologies including MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and CT (computerized tomography) are also provided there.
Patient navigators at Duke Raleigh Cancer Center help guide patients and assist them and their families as they cope with all aspects of cancer care, from treatment logistics and finances to emotional and nutritional concerns.
"The expansion of cancer services at Duke Raleigh Cancer Center is an example of Duke's commitment to come "closer to you, the patient," says Doug Vinsel, president of Duke Raleigh Hospital. "We're proud to be adding to the depth and breadth of oncology services here in Wake County."
