The Department of Hematology/Oncology at Fox Chase Cancer Center is staffed with medical oncologists who are regional and national leaders in their field. As part of the multidisciplinary cancer treatment team, our medical oncologists help to determine personalized treatment plans for your specific cancer, which may include systemic therapies such as targeted therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, or chemotherapy, either as standard of care or as part of a clinical trial.

The Hematology/Oncology multidisciplinary team provides quality diagnosis, treatment, and care for patients with cancer. Our medical oncologists are leaders in their field, conducting important clinical research and helping to set treatment guidelines by serving on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines board.

Currently available treatments as well as new clinical trials provide our fellowship-trained oncologists with access to a tremendous range of new anticancer treatments, including medicines and combinations of medicines to provide you with the therapies you need.
