If you require radiation therapy, we have highly trained professionals who are eager to provide the best care possible. Radiation oncologists are specially trained physicians who treat cancer patients with radiation precisely targeted at the cancerous area.
Radiation oncologists are part of your treatment team and work with medical oncologists (chemotherapy) and surgical specialists to determine the best treatment plan for you. Because your cancer is unique, your treatment plan will be too, including the duration and intensity of radiation therapy treatment.
Treatment options include external beam radiation, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), and brachytherapy.
