Personalized Cancer Care
Oncologists and researchers at Memorial Hermann-TMC and The University of Texas Health Science Center at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth have taken cancer treatment to the next level, using advanced techniques to break down an individual's specific tumor or tumors at a molecular level so we can offer specific, personalized treatments to deliver the best possible outcomes.
Anticancer agents small enough to work inside living cells have revolutionized cancer treatment, dramatically expanding our arsenal against the disease. By identifying and binding to primary and metastatic cancer cells, the biological agents operate more selectively, with improved effectiveness and reduced toxicity.
Together with our affiliated physicians, specially trained staff and nurses, the Memorial Hermann Cancer Center-Texas Medical Center offers leading cancer care personalized to meet the specific needs of each patient who passes through our doors.
