Alternative Medicine and Cancer in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Business Journal examines local health care institutions and their increasing adoption of complementary and alternative medicine in the battle against cancer.

"Some surveys have shown that up to 60 percent of cancer patients use complementary therapy without telling their oncology team," said Grana, head of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey at Cooper University Hospital in Voorhees. "In some cases, it's because physicians haven't been asking what else their patients are doing. Also, patients think it won't be well perceived and they may be looked down upon because what they are doing is not the standard of care."
