Patient Care Overview

The UNC Division of Oncology offers world-class, cutting-edge diagnosis and treatment of solid tumors, including lung cancer, head and neck cancer, thyroid cancer, sarcoma, genitourinary cancers, GI 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. Nurse navigators make our system feel small, friendly, and easy to navigate while harnessing the power of a large world-class academic medical center. Our intake process is rapid—most patients are offered a consultation within days and we will take care of getting 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 oncology, surgical oncology, and other medical specialties. We are squarely focused on quality of life and work closely with nutritionists, pain management specialists, and therapists.
