A new specialized surgery clinic has opened its doors within the grounds of Memorial Hermann City Medical Center, West Houston, an investment of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, with the aim of giving patients in the region more convenient access to state-of-the-art surgical cancer care.
The newly-inaugurated clinic, located at the Memorial Hermann Professional Building at 925 Gessner, has an area of approximately 5,000 square feet, and houses an team of MD Anderson surgeons who are experts in various cancers of the breast, lung, esophagus, head and neck, thyroid and skin. Additionally, patients can also consult with an on-duty urologist, neurosurgeon, reconstructive surgeon, and three gynecologic oncologists.
All surgeon specialists are faculty members of MD Anderson and have finished their post-residency fellowship. They are assisted by their respective teams comprised of several healthcare professionals from MD Anderson, who are also experts in cancer care. Furthermore, they are authorized to perform surgery within the medical center, in collaboration with the center’s own professional teams and resources.
Aside from this new clinic within Memorial City, MD Anderson has four other fully-operational remote clinics. They are in the Bay Area (Nassau Bay), Sugar Land, Katy and The Woodlands. All of MD Anderson’s regional clinics offer cutting edge services and top quality patient care such as medical, surgical and radiation oncology, chemotherapy, pain management, nutrition, and laboratory needs.
This news joins a recent trend of new, promising news out of MD Anderson, both with respect to new cancer treatment development as well as further expansion of the Center’s facilities. Earlier, BioNews Texas reported on an MD Anderson associate professor’s successful fundraising for a new clinical trial for NeuVax, a potential breast cancer treatment.
