Team approach to cancer treatment

Welcome to the Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU Medicine. Our multidisciplinary team works hard to advance the field of cancer research. So far, we’ve been awarded millions of dollars in grant funding to help discover new techniques in cancer screening, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. With direct access to this research as well as advanced education, our medical students and residents have a unique advantage as they fulfill their training.

Our staff also provides compassionate, comprehensive, team-oriented care for patients with cancer, as well as their families and caregivers. In addition to direct medical care, we also offer and regularly develop complementary programs and therapies including support groups, yoga, gentle yoga, Qi Gong, tai chi, Pilates, and fitness.
