Our cancer care team is ready to fight cancer using a collaborative team approach, advanced technology, and personal and compassionate service.

In addition, we have received the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) certification, awarded for exceptional outpatient care by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. PCI Hematology & Oncology was the first cancer treatment provider in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City Corridor to receive the three-year certification.

As a result, our treatment plans are well defined and referenced against standards from the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).

Hematology & Oncology Treatment & Services

PCI’s medical oncology team works closely with surgeons, radiation oncologists, and the Helen G Nassif Community Cancer Center to provide a complete and comprehensive “whole person” approach to cancer care.

When cancer is diagnosed, we help you weigh all the options for treatment. If surgery is an option, you can rest assured PCI brings together the top surgical oncologists across a variety of fields.

Surgeons in our Ear, Nose and Throat clinic operate on all cancers of the head and neck, including

  • Esophageal Cancer
  • Mouth and Tongue Cancers
  • Skin Cancer (Melanoma)
  • Salivary Gland Cancers
  • Throat Cancer
  • Thyroid and Parathyroid Cancer

Surgeons in our General Surgery clinic operate on cancers in other parts of the body, including:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Colon & Rectal Cancers
  • Gastrointestinal (Stomach) Cancer
  • Pancreatic & Liver Cancer

Surgeons in our Urology clinic operate on cancers of the urinary and gynecological systems, including

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Prostate and Testicular Cancers

PCI’s Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons help to reconstruct areas of the body that have had cancer removed. Some examples include breast reconstruction and Mohs reconstruction after skin cancer surgery.

Some cancers cannot be treated with surgery. Cancers such as Leukemia (cancer of the blood) and Lymphoma (cancer of the lymphatic system) can be treated with chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, or bone marrow transplant.

You may need radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy before or after surgery, depending on the type of cancer, cancer stage and other factors. Our oncology team will work closely with you to discuss all your treatment options and the resources available to help you along the way.
