We offer advanced treatments today, and conduct clinical trials that may lead to even better treatments tomorrow.
For example, one study is currently underway that uses a patient’s own cancer cells to personalize chemotherapy. This may allow patients to better withstand treatment with less sickness and discomfort.
In 2015, approximately six percent of our patients were included in clinical trials and research studies. By taking part, you can:
- Help the medical community discover new, better treatments
- Have the satisfaction of aiding in progress against disease
- Receive the most recent information and evidence-based care from our experts
In partnership with the Baylor Scott & White Research Institute and local physician practices, Baylor Scott & White – McKinney can aid you in finding the right clinical trial.
