Comprehensive Cancer Center
The Comprehensive Cancer Center is committed to providing the finest in cancer-related services through an integrated system of health and social services.
The Cancer Center team includes medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, specially trained RNs, clinical nurse specialists in complementary therapy, and pharmacists. This team collaborates with physical therapists to provide care to patients with lymphedema and with a geneticist who provides genetic counseling to patients and families. The Comprehensive Cancer Center also includes the Nancy Geltman Shiller Cancer Resource Library.
The continuum of care extends from prevention, diagnosis, treatment, symptom control, and cure, through all related aspects of adjustment to relapse, survivorship, and bereavement counseling.
Dr. Bommakanti enjoys building relationships with her patients and contributing to the continuity of care with long term cancer survivors. Working alongside medical trainees and as an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, she is passionate about medical education.
Congratulations to Rising Star, Dr. Bommakanti!
The Hennepin Healthcare Comprehensive Cancer Center works in cooperation with national research groups to advance knowledge about cancer. The Center has long-standing partnerships with the Metro Minnesota Community Oncology Research Consortium (MMCORC), a nonprofit research program sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and participating community hospitals and clinics, and with the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU). As a result of these affiliations, patients receive access to the newest therapies available for cancer treatment, symptom management, and cancer prevention.
As a designated cancer research program of the Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation (MMRF), we work on the treatment and prevention of many types of cancer and cancer symptoms, as well as survivorship. To learn more about our current research program, please visit the MMCORC website at www.ccopnet.com.
This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read our FAQs about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
