Nutrition Services

Oncology patients can be at risk for nutritional problems, due to their illnesses and the stresses related to surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

Complications can include malnutrition due to lack of appetite, changes in taste and smell perceptions, and damage to the gastrointestinal tract, either from the disease or its treatment.

South Shore Hospital's nutrition department is experienced in improving cancer patients' nutritional status through the administration of dietary supplements, one-to-one dietician instruction, tube feedings, and dietary palliative care.

Please call 781-624-8809 to make an appointment. A physician referral is required.
