Here are some of the advanced services and capabilities we provide as part of our commitment to the communities and people of Central New Jersey:
- Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy is a primary treatment for cancer that uses medications to destroy cancer cells. Astera Cancer Care’s highly trained oncologists combine experience and board-certified expertise with the very latest protocols, options, and anticancer medications.
- Cancer Surgery – Surgery to remove tumors remains a leading, highly effective treatment for cancer. We work with leading Central NJ surgeons to help ensure optimal outcomes, including for palliative procedures to provide relief.
- Radiation Oncology – Radiation therapy is a longstanding, long-proven, highly effective form of cancer treatment commonly used for many types of cancer. Advances have resulted in more precise targeting and delivery, maximizing treatment efficacy while minimizing exposure to normal tissue. Astera Cancer Care partners with the region’s most skilled and reputable radiation specialists.
- Clinical Trials – Clinical research trials are how new medical treatments are studied. Astera Cancer Care participates in a wide range of these clinical investigations, which not only helps advance cancer care but also offers new hope to patients not being helped by other forms of treatment.
- CAR T-Cell Therapy – A breakthrough approach to cancer care, CAR T-cell therapy is an advanced immunotherapy that works with your own immune system cells to fight cancer within your body.
- Pharmacy – In-house pharmacy services at Astera Cancer Care provide the convenience of one-stop shopping backed by certified oncology pharmacy personnel. Plus, our pharmacy services are coordinated by our oncology pharmacist, a doctor of pharmacy who is an integral part of our treatment and research protocols. Because safety, accuracy and treatment effectiveness are of paramount importance.

As cancer specialists, we understand that palliative treatment to maximize comfort and quality of life is essential, and we coordinate and manage your or your loved one’s care with as much focus on relief as on cure.
