The White Plains Hospital Cancer Program offers the right kind of care, at the right time – close to home. The Hospital's advanced care includes the following:

Next Generation DNA sequencing

This type of DNA sequencing of cancers allows for improved targeting of the malignant disease – a personalized approach to cancer therapy.

Navigational 3-dimensional bronchoscopy

Navigational bronchoscopy is a tool used for early diagnosis of lung cancer. It uses a flexible tube and GPS monitor to look inside the lungs and airway.

SPY intraoperative perfusion assessment system

This system is used to help reduce complications and improve outcomes in women undergoing post mastectomy breast reconstruction.

Robotic surgery

Minimally invasive surgery is used for the management of head and neck cancer, thoracic tumors, prostate cancer, and gynecologic tumors. The advantages of this type of surgery include smaller incisions, less blood loss, and quicker recovery time.White Plains Hospital has one of the most comprehensive robotic surgery programs in the region, using the da Vinci Surgical System for partial nephrectomy (kidney sparing surgery for kidney cancer); female urologic and gynecologic surgeries; colorectal surgery; and thoracic surgery.

Immunotherapy

White Plains Hospital is able to offer cutting-edge immunotherapy for management of numerous forms of cancer. Immunotherapy is a promising new area in the treatment of cancer, and uses a patient’s own immune system to destroy cancer cells. There are many clinical studies available that explore the use of immunotherapy in cancer treatment, sometimes in combination with more traditional cancer treatment such as chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation.

Supportive Services

A cancer diagnosis is challenging and can be overwhelming. In addition to the medical and surgical services, supportive services are a key component of our program. White Plains Hospital offers a full array of supportive services to our patients. We also offer referrals to additional resources from trusted community partners.
