Providing chemotherapy treatment for many cancer types.
Sometimes called systemic therapy, chemotherapy is given to treat cancer and prevent its recurrence, and can be used alone or in conjunction with surgery or radiation therapy. The medication flows through the body to target and destroy fast-growing cells — cancer cells, as well as others.
The excellent care you've come to expect.
At Sharp, patients receive chemotherapy and other supportive medical treatments from specially trained nurses in a comfortable environment, and return home on the same day. Chemotherapy is generally given in cycles — a treatment period is following by a recovery period before another treatment period begins.
Learn more about what to expect and how to prepare for chemotherapy treatment at Sharp and read our guide on food safety during cancer treatment.
