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.
