Our Treatment Results
While there are many factors that may constitute successful treatment, the one looked at most often is survival rates associated with certain types of late stage cancer (Stage IV). At Mountain Blue Cancer Care, we believe you have the right to know how your chosen provider compares with national averages.
Most patients do not receive a Stage IV cancer diagnosis; however, seeing how our survival rates compare for late-stage cancer patients gives you a good picture of how we approach treatment with all our cancer patients. This includes treatment for patients diagnosed at earlier stages, when cancer is usually more easily and successfully treated.
As with any statistical analysis there are limitations due to the many different types of cancer classifications, the patient’s age and gender, the point at which care is started, etc. We have attempted to provide as accurate a comparison as possible, using the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program database for comparison.
