Our cancer experts work to ensure coordinated care is available to each patient through diagnosis, treatment and recovery — putting you at the center of everything we do.

The UF Health Cancer Center offers a range of diagnostic, treatment and after care services for all types of adult and children’s cancer.

One of the great benefits of receiving cancer care at an academic health center like UF Health is patient access to the most advanced medical research, treatments and technologies. As an academic health center, our clinician-scientists participate in research that has a direct impact on improved patient outcomes, and access to the very latest cancer-killing technologies and drugs. This unusual combination of research, technology and advanced patient care results in better outcomes and quality of life for our cancer patients and their families.

Dr. Spiguel and every member of my team is amazing. I have immense love for them and feel incredibly lucky and blessed to have them in my corner.

In June 2023, the UF Health Cancer Center became Florida’s newest NCI-designated cancer center. Only Cancer Centers that meet the highest standards for research and development in creating innovative approaches to cancer diagnosis and treatment achieve this level of distinction. An NCI-designation gets us a step closer to realizing our vision of a future where everyone has access to individually tailored treatments and leading-edge clinical trials that reduce the burden of cancer in our community and beyond.

Cancer Rehabilitation Services

After going through cancer treatments, patients may find themselves unable to perform the activities they once could. Our cancer rehabilitation specialists work with patients living with cancer and cancer survivors to maintain and improve their emotional well-being and physical function.

The cancer rehabilitation specialists at UF Health perform comprehensive evaluations and rehabilitative care – from physical and occupational therapy to other supportive services.

For patients with breast and gynecological cancers, our cancer rehabilitation physicians provide pre- and post-operative screenings as well as management of upper and lower extremity lymphedema.

Many cancer patients suffer from musculoskeletal complications during their cancer diagnosis and treatment. Our specialists help provide education on lifestyle changes and exercises that can help patients improve physically during and after cancer treatment. We also provide long-term care to evaluate our patients’ rehabilitation needs long after the completion of their treatment.
