Chemotherapy Port Placement

For patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment for cancer, a chest or arm port is often the most comfortable and convenient way to administer the chemotherapy drugs.

Subcutaneous venous ports are currently the preferred type of port because of their low infection rate and because they provide the greatest comfort for the patient. Placement of these ports has traditionally done via open surgery, but our doctors can use radiology imaging techniques to put the ports in more quickly and less invasively, resulting in fewer complications.

Chemotherapy port placement is a procedure that our doctors perform in our freestanding facility. The procedure takes about an hour and no overnight stay is required.
