Oncology

A very important aspect of cancer care at Medical City and Medical City Children’s Hospital involves providing our patients access to a variety of oncology clinical trials. Children’s Oncology Group and Texas Oncology support a wide array of research studies directed at improving diagnostic and treatment modalities for both common and rare forms of carcinoma, as does Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center. Patients are provided education regarding the availability of clinical trials at various access points within the institution. The Cancer Resource Center provides computer access for patients and their families to research clinical trial information ongoing at Medical City as well as at other institutions through clinicaltrials.gov
