Integrative Oncology: 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.
It 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.
At Wilmot Cancer Institute, we’re on a mission to help patients improve their entire wellbeing – physical, mental, and emotional. That’s why we created the Pluta Integrative Oncology & Wellness Center, in partnership with the Pluta Cancer Center Foundation.
The center is focused on guiding cancer patients to better quality of life by helping lower stress, improve mood, decrease pain, and empower patients to be in control of their care. 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.
Services are open to patients seen at any Wilmot Cancer Instiute location, and virtual program options are available. Most programs are free to patients, thanks to generous support from the community through the Pluta Cancer Center Foundation.
