A different approach to care
Integrative oncology is a patient-centered, evidence-based field of cancer care that uses mind and body practices, natural products and lifestyle modifications alongside conventional cancer treatments.
Integrative oncology aims to optimize health, quality of life and clinical outcomes across the cancer continuum. It also helps people prevent cancer and become active participants before, during and beyond cancer treatment.
UR Medicine Wilmot Cancer Institute's Pluta Integrative Oncology & Wellness Center is uniquely focused on partnering with our cancer patients to improve their quality of life by helping to lower stress, improve mood, decrease pain and empower patients to be in control of their care.
We’re on a mission to help patients improve their entire wellbeing – physical, mental and emotional. Our medical directors are board-certified oncologists who help patients manage the symptoms of cancer and cancer treatment with traditional and non-traditional care plans.
That’s why we’ve created UR Medicine Wilmot Cancer Institute's Pluta Integrative Oncology & Wellness Center.
Integrative oncology focuses on the whole patient. Not just treating cancer, but helping patients manage symptoms, improve their quality of life, and feel more in control of their care. All of our instructors and staff are uniquely qualified to teach based upon their credentials, as well as their skills and additional training in working with cancer patients.
