Treatments and Services

One-stop care 
We know going through cancer treatment can feel daunting. This is why when you come to our facility, you will have everything you need in one location. Our in-house lab, diagnostic services, treatment facilities and physicians’ offices are there to help you navigate the road ahead as a cancer patient and future survivor.

Latest radiation therapy 
One of the latest additions to our cancer center’s arsenal is the Varian TrueBeam® Linear Accelerator with rapid arc technology and body surface imaging.  

Life-Changing Immunotherapy
Immunotherapy stimulates your immune system to attack cancer cells by supplying it with components such as man-made proteins. This therapy has been approved to fight cancers of the lung, melanoma, bladder, kidney, head and neck.

Support groups are available for families, survivors, and those undergoing treatment.

Personalized Cancer Treatment Options

No single treatment will work for various types of cancer in different patients. This is why the W. Temple Webber Cancer Center at CHRISTUS St. Michael provides a multidisciplinary team approach, which means we work together to coordinate a treatment plan that’s tailored to you and your needs. Your options for care are as individual as you are.

Ensuring you are healthy overall is always our primary focus. Our nonsurgical cancer treatment options offer highly effective results through minimally invasive procedures. That means our treatments will:

  • Cause fewer side effects
  • Preserve healthy tissue while targeting the tumor
  • Help you maintain your daily routines and overall quality of life
