Patient treatment and services
As the only comprehensive cancer centre in NSW, we treat all types of cancer, specialising in those that are complex and rare. From screening to prevention, diagnosis, treatment and wellness, we offer patients every service and therapy they need all under the one roof.
Our patients are treated by multidisciplinary teams including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, psychologists and researchers, all who are able to provide peer-reviewed, tailored, personalised treatment. Patient care is also underpinned by a thriving research program that ensures we can provide the latest approaches to cancer prevention, care and treatment.
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is the largest cancer clinical trial centre in New South Wales, giving our patients access to some of the world’s newest lifesaving drugs and breakthroughs. Research and trials are carried out by the same clinicians who treat patients, shortening the path between discovery and new treatments.
We are committed to treating the whole person, not just their cancer, which is why we offer evidence-based complementary therapies and supportive care both site through the Lifehouse LivingRoom and for inpatients via our Allied Health team.
