Services and Treatments

Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy, sometimes called radiotherapy, is the use of various forms of radiation to safely and effectively treat cancer and other diseases. Doctors use radiation therapy to try to cure cancer, to control the growth of the cancer or to relieve symptoms, such as pain.

While you undergo radiation therapy, a team of highly trained medical professionals will be working together to make sure you receive the best care possible. A radiation oncologist, a doctor who specializes in using radiation to treat cancer, leads this team. For more information on Radiation therapy, click here.

Medical Oncology
Treatment is provided under the expert supervision of medical oncologists who are specially trained to treat your specific type of cancer. Our medical oncologists meet with you and your family to determine an individualized treatment plan using medicines to treat malignant (cancerous) cells. Your doctor then monitors your progress throughout the course of treatment, adjusting your medication as needed.

Our medical oncologists at the Cancer Center work with a team of professionals which allows for personalized care that is supportive, well rounded and easy to access. Our experts are active clinical trials and drug research which allows patient access to novel therapies.

Diagnostic Imaging
Radiology imaging studies are, in most cases, performed by a trained x-ray technologist, a highly skilled individual who has been trained and licensed to perform the examination in a manner that ensures the best diagnostic results possible. The more specialized imaging modalites (CT, MRI, PET/CT Scan Bone Densitomery, Ultrasonography) are performed by technologists who have additional specialized training in these procedures. The radiologist, a specially trained physician, reviews and interprets the radiographic images and reports the findings to your referring physician.
