Our Specialized Programs

Dr. Charles Tiber and Dr. Varsha ShahAscension Columbia St. Mary’s Polly and Bill Van Dyke Cancer Centers are 'destinations of choice' for people diagnosed with cancer throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. Cancer patients often seek medical care from multiple healthcare professionals at different times throughout treatment. The Van Dyke Cancer Centers integrate all of the caregivers, physicians, nursing and support staff, together at one site to enhance communication among those providers and their patients, ultimately creating better patient outcomes.

All of our patients benefit from our multidisciplinary approach to care. Our expert committee of physicians discusses every case prior to meeting each patient. They then work as a comprehensive team with the patient at the table to arrive at a treatment plan aimed to eliminate cancer and maintain wishes of each individual cared for at Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s.

Our multidisciplinary team fights all cancers. While we have specialized programs in some of the most common forms of cancer, we deploy the same principles used in these programs — advanced technologies, expert teams and support services — in fighting all cancers.
