Treating Cancer with Radiation State-of-the-Art Technology What Our Patients Are Saying
  Radiation Oncology involves the use of radiation to treat many forms of cancer. It can be delivered both internally and externally. The goal of all radiation therapy is to give the tumor a lethal dose of radiation while limiting the exposure to the surrounding healthy tissues.

When treating with radiation, sophisticated dose calculations are made in order to contour the shape and intensity of the beam precisely to the targeted area. Treatments are typically scheduled Monday through Friday, and most patients are able to continue with their normal activities. Radiation is a painless treatment and does not result in hair loss.

  Our Board-Certified Radiation Oncologists and highly trained staff can offer a variety of radiation treatments using advanced 3-D imaging technology.
  Every patient receives a unique treatment plan that maximizes the dose to the tumor while reducing exposure to the normal healthy tissues. The clinician may use a variety of technologies to achieve the best result for every patient. (more info)
