Conditions We Treat
Radiation therapy (sometimes referred to as radiotherapy) is one of the most effective treatments available to fight cancer. This treatment uses high levels of radiation to control or kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. The radiation damages the malignant cells by destroying the DNA that controls the cells’ ability to grow and reproduce. Although radiation therapy is on its own a sufficient treatment in many cases, it can also be combined with other cancer treatments, such as surgery and chemotherapy. In addition to curing cancer, radiation therapy can also be used, in lower doses, as a palliative treatment to relieve pain or reduce bleeding with minimal side effects.
Our highly skilled radiation oncologists are all specialists in the site specific treatment of various cancers and conditions. The Department treats over 1,000 patients annually with noteworthy outcomes. We work closely with other cancer care specialists to ensure our patients receive the best possible care.
