U-HEAL: A Haven for Healing

Welcome to U-HEAL, the Integrative Oncology Program at the Upstate Cancer Center. Our goal is to create healthier communities by reducing the burden of cancer in the lives of our patients and their family members, while supporting health care providers and communities with the latest evidence on healing and cancer care. We have programs for individuals, families, and consult with communities to optimize wellness. As plans for the new Upstate Cancer Center at Upstate Medical University are being finalized, we have created a haven for healing.

Integrative Medicine combines conventional cancer therapies…

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy
  • Surgery

…with Complementary therapies to support a patient’s health, such as:

  • Nutritional Guidance
  • Physical Exercise
  • Stress Management
  • Spiritual Wellness

More programs are being developed to create an optimal comprehensive treatment to help cancer patients not only survive but THRIVE.
