Palliative Care

Palliative Care Madison Wisconsin

Palliative care is not hospice care. At Turville Bay, palliative care is given throughout a patient’s experience with cancer to improve their quality of life.

This type of care for cancer patients addresses psychological, social, and even spiritual problems along with pain. At Turville Bay, palliative care is not used to treat the cancer itself, it is used to treat the symptoms and side effects of cancer and its treatment. Palliative care can begin at diagnosis and continue through cancer treatment and follow-up care. The earlier palliative care starts, the better the outcome.

“The goal is to relieve pain and discomfort thereby helping patients maintain independence,”

says Dr. June Kim, Radiation Oncologist at Turville Bay MRI & Radiation Oncology Center in Madison.
