Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Macomb

Archive, January, Month, Topics

A respected name in all of medicine, Karmanos Cancer Institute care is available in Macomb County.

As a national leader in cancer care, Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit earned its reputation with every life it saved.

Solely focused on cancer care, the name has become consistent with the latest cancer-fighting treatments, access to the latest clinical trials and a network of skilled oncologists, each offering his or her own expertise and experience for the benefit of all patients.

However, what might not be so readily known is that Macomb County residents can benefit from the knowledge and care of this leader in cancer care close to home.

Through McLaren Macomb, patients can access the cancer-fighting resources of the Karmanos Cancer Institute in their entirety, including tomorrow’s treatment options thanks to clinical trials.

“Being in the position to offer this level of care within Macomb County provides invaluable benefits to the patient, and that extends to their loved ones,” said Tom Brisse, McLaren Macomb president and CEO. “Receiving cancer treatments can be the most difficult time in anyone’s life, and our patients don’t need the added stresses associated with repeated, time-consuming travel and unfamiliar places. We are grateful we are able to bring the expertise of Karmanos to them here, close to home.”

One of just 51 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer centers, Karmanos’ high level of care is found at the Ted B. Wahby Cancer Center on the campus of McLaren Macomb in Mount Clemens.

Statistics support that Karmanos patients have higher survival rates.

To maintain its NCI designation, all patients have access to Karmanos’ clinical trials, multidisciplinary teams of oncologists and exclusive treatment options, which include one of only two proton therapy centers in the state — McLaren Proton Therapy Center in Flint.

Using the latest technology, proton therapy offers the most precise and powerful cancer treatment available.
