Preventive and Diagnostic Care
Through community classes and events, RCH reaches out to Riverside County
to raise cancer awareness and improve screening practices. With services
such as 3D digital mammography and genetic counseling, we can help you
get on the right path to cancer prevention while facilitating early diagnoses
for more effective care. We implement the most sophisticated imaging technologies
to improve accuracy in every diagnosis.
State-of-the-Art Treatment Modalities
Our Cancer Center remains invested in the latest treatments available across
all areas of oncology, creating more opportunities for successful care
and survivorship. Every patient will have a unique treatment plan that
may incorporate the following modalities under the care of a team of physicians
offering their own experience and insight to the treatment process.
Medical oncology and hematology – Medical oncology and hematology may utilize targeted therapies, chemotherapy,
and drugs currently under the testing of clinical trials. These treatments
can be particularly beneficial in later stage cancers that have spread
to multiple areas of the body.
Radiation therapy – Among our sophisticated radiation therapy treatments is the CyberKnife
Stereotactic Radiosurgery System, which can provide hope for patients
with tumors that are considered inoperable through conventional surgery.
CyberKnife treatment is a targeted form of radiation therapy that can
be used for tumors in the head and neck, lung, liver, pancreas, and prostate.
Surgical oncology – When surgical care is necessary, patients will work with a number of specialists
to plan the right procedures for the location and stage of their cancer.
With the option of da Vinci Robotically-Assisted Surgery, patients may
experience shorter recovery times and minimal side effects with their care.
