Integrative medicine reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic, lifestyle approaches, and healthcare disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.
Smilow Cancer Hospital's approach to integrative medicine provides evidence-based guidance about complementary therapies commonly used by cancer patients and survivors. We work to optimize mainstream care and address the serious physical and emotional symptoms often experienced by patients before, during, and after therapy, and avoid interactions with conventional care. Our team has expertise in the practice and scientific evaluation of complementary medicine which can guide patients to make effective decisions about the most helpful integrative therapies throughout their treatment program and beyond. We collaborate closely with your oncology team to provide safe and effective care.
