Now, nearly fifty years later, the LOURDES Regional Cancer Center continues that mission. Since 1971, the Lourdes Regional Cancer Center has been accredited as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. Most recently, Lourdes has been awarded the 2008 Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award by the Commission on Cancer American College of Surgeons. The Award is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. Lourdes is one of only 95 facilities in the US to receive this award.
Today, Lourdes is among the largest and most sophisticated community cancer centers in the country. Here within the region's premier facility dedicated to the fight against cancer we've gathered the area's top physicians and oncologists. We've assembled select teams of cancer nurses and specialists and we've brought to the Southern Tier some of the newest weapons to fight cancer.
Pastoral care, nutrition services, and rehabilitation services are also available for both outpatients and inpatients. Lourdes Regional Cancer Center also maintains a link with the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) database. This database provides the latest information on research advances and new treatments, as well as emerging topics on the influence of genetics, environmental factors and lifestyle factors in the development of cancer.

Does your office provide treatment for infertility?
Our physicians and nurse practitioners offer a full diagnostic workup and treatment for female infertility diagnosis, including surgical intervention if necessary. Our office also performs advanced assisted fertility procedures including super ovulation medical management and intrauterine incemination.
Who reviews the mammography image/results?
All mammography results are reviewed a minimum of two times. The first review is performed by one of our board certified radiologists. The second review is performed by the R2 ImageChecker. The R2 ImageChecker is a Computer Aided Detection (CAD) system that analyzes mammograms giving a computerized “second opinion.”

UHS offers a variety of medical services, at convenient locations throughout Greater Binghamton and surrounding counties. For directions to each of our facilities, visit our website at www.uhs.net or call our free Nurse Direct line at 607-762-2336.
Does your office offer testing for hereditary breast and ovarian cancers?
Yes, our office is a leader in BRCA screening for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer as well as offering screenings for other cancers such as endometrial and colorectal cancers. If your test is positive for hereditary cancer most surgical procedures can be done using minimally invasive surgery.
How long will my stent last?
Forever, but there is still a small chance of restenosis (a new blockage forming). It is very important for you to take an active role in living a heart healthy lifestyle, as doing so will lessen your chance of restenosis. The stent (coronary) will never be removed.
