Millions of Americans live with serious medical conditions such as cancer or advanced heart and respiratory disease, and many of these patients could benefit from palliative care.
At Kirill Zhadovich, MD, SC, we are proud to offer palliative care consultations to those who may be facing a serious illness.
Palliative care is specialized medical care for patients with serious conditions that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of living with their illness to improve the quality of life for both the patient and family. Unlike hospice, palliative care is delivered along with continued curative and life-prolonging treatment. Palliative care is appropriate for people of any age and every stage of an illness.
This care is provided by a specially trained team of doctors, nurses, social workers, and other specialists who will work together with the patient’s medical team to provide support and care for the patient based on their needs, not the prognosis.
For more information on palliative care and how you can benefit or to schedule an appointment, please contact us today at our Niles Office – (847) 825-0800 or Vernon Hills Office – (847) 549-3171.
