The UNC Division of Oncology offers world-class, cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment of solid tumors, including lung cancer, head and neck cancer, sarcoma, genitourinary cancers, gastrointestinal malignancies, skin cancers, and breast cancer, as well as expertise in a multitude of rare cancers.
At UNC, we are focused on providing care that is technically advanced, compassionate, and coordinated. While harnessing the power of a large world-class academic medical institution, nurse navigators make our system feel small, personable, and easy to navigate. Our intake process is quick—most patients are offered a consultation within a few days, and we will take care of obtaining the necessary records. We coordinate care across allied disciplines in multidisciplinary tumor boards, where patient needs are discussed and treatment recommendations optimized. We collaborate extensively with local oncologists, primary care physicians, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, and other medical specialties. We also work together with nutritionists, pain management specialists, and therapists to focus on quality of life.
