Specialists in NJ Kidney Cancer Care

Kidney cancer patients who trust us with their care have complete access to a full range of treatment options. First, your oncologist and care team will assess your health, then use their extensive knowledge to give you details on all possible treatment options. Armed with this information, it makes it easier to establish a care plan that is right for you.

The team at our cancer treatment centers in New Jersey includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, certified oncology nurses, social workers, case managers, nutritionists, pharmacists, and pastoral care staff—all ready to put their skills to work for your total health and wellness.

    Treatment options can include:

    • Surgery: Surgery to remove the kidney (and any nearby lymph nodes containing cancer) is called a nephrectomy. It also can ease pressure or pain. The remaining kidney is often able to do the work of both kidneys.
    • Biologic Therapy/Immunotherapy: This treatment uses medicines to trigger your immune system to fight the cancer.
    • Radiation Therapy: Using high-energy x-rays, radiation therapy is most often used when the kidney cancer has spread to certain bones or the brain. It may be used to treat symptoms such as cough or pain.
    • Chemotherapy: This treatment uses one more medicines to kill cancer cells or shrink tumors, and often is very effective against kidney cancer.
    • Ablation Therapy: The two types of ablation therapy used to treat kidney cancer include injecting needles into the area of cancer cells: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses energy waves to kill cancer cells. Cryoablation uses extreme cold to kill cancer cells.
    • Targeted Therapy: Medications that target specific parts of kidney cancer cells to kill them or slow their growth are part of this treatment, which is typically used to treat advanced kidney cancer.
    • Supportive Care: This involves therapies that may ease symptoms, but does not treat the cancer.
