Chemotherapy also known as "chemo" is a type of treatment for cancer that uses a medication or combination of medications to destroy cancer cells.

Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells. Shore Medical Center’s cancer care team includes three well-respected chemotherapy specialists: Shore Cancer Center Medical Oncology Director Dr. Julianne Childs, Dr. Hemang Dave, and Dr. Kaleem Ahmad. The team also includes nurses who are specially trained in the administration of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is offered in our patient-centered chemotherapy suite.
