Texas Oncology in Central Texas

Founded in 1986, Texas Oncology is a pioneer in high quality community-based cancer care. Texas Oncology is an independent oncology practice with more than 420 physicians and more than 175 locations across Texas and southeastern Oklahoma, including 48 comprehensive cancer centers. Texas Oncology’s community-based approach of integrated subspecialty oncology care enables patients to receive leading-edge treatment while living at home and receiving the critical support of family and friends.

Leading innovation in quality cancer care for Texans

Texas Oncology uses evidence-based best practices to guide patient treatment across the network in a program known as Pathways, in collaboration with the National Cancer Collaborative Network. Texas Oncology physicians use these Pathways and programs to support genetic risk assessment, disease management, cancer survivorship, and advance care planning to improve the quality of the patients’ cancer journey.

At our comprehensive cancer centers, our patients access much of their treatment under one roof from a knowledgeable and supportive cancer care team, including chemotherapy, patient navigation, social services, financial consultation, radiation, access to clinical trials, X-rays, PET, CT, other diagnostic imaging, lab, and pharmacy services.

Participation in leading-edge clinical trials

Patients who are treated at Texas Oncology have the opportunity to participate in some of the most promising national clinical trials for a broad range of cancers. Texas Oncology is a primary participant in US Oncology Research, which has played a role in more than 70 FDA-approved therapies, about one-third of all cancer therapies approved by the agency to date.

At any given time, more than 150 national clinical trials are open throughout the network.
