The PINC Program is chronologically formatted into 4 phases. Timing of each phase is dependent upon your physical condition, the length of the healing process, the type of surgery involved, and the courses of adjuvant treatments.

? Pre Op Phase ? Designed to prepare you for your upcoming cancer surgery
