Cypress Hematology And Oncology


Chemotherapy, or "chemo" as it is often referred to, is a body-wide treatment that uses powerful drugs to destroy cancer cells.

We utilize chemotherapy to:

  • Prevent the spread of cancer 
  • Slow cancer growth 
  • Relieve symptoms caused by cancer 
  • Cure cancer by destroying cancerous cells

Depending on the diagnosis and specific treatment plan, chemotherapy can be administered via injection, topical creams, pills, capsules, liquids that a patient swallows, or through intravenous (IV) infusion.

No matter what delivery method is used, the physicians and staff at Avista Cypress Oncology Denver try to ensure that every patient undergoing chemotherapy is comfortable and relaxed during the entire process.

Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials

As part of the Porter Cancer Center, Avista Cypress Oncology Denver has access to clinical trials that give us access to investigational treatments and experiential cancer therapies.

A clinical trial is research (often sponsored by a pharmaceutical company) conducted by physicians on patients to determine the effectiveness of a newly developed drug or technology in a real world setting. Investigational treatments provide patients with additional treatment options otherwise not available while contributing to cancer research.
