Seton is committed to providing patients the best continuum of cancer care in Central Texas. Our goal is to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors by addressing potential late effects from treatment as well as medical and other life issues that may result from cancer through a range of programs, services, and specialists.
Advances in our understanding of cancer and our ability to detect and treat it have led to greater survival rates for patients. But sometimes cancer survival comes with a price, and for many, life is never quite the same. The radiation, chemotherapy and surgery used to successfully treat cancers may lead to what are called "late effects".
There are four elements to cancer survivorship:
Seton offers a range of services to address each of the four components of survivorship: coordination, intervention, surveillance, and prevention.
Our resources page provides more information on the services we have available for cancer survivors. Please contact our patient navigator if you have additional questions or would like more information 512-324-9652.
