Radiation

We offer the most advanced radiation treatment options in the area. Radiation therapy is used to treat more than half of all cancer patients. Our cancer center is accredited by the American College of Radiology. We treat several types of cancer with radiation, including breast, head and neck, pediatric, gynecologic, prostate, lung, lymphoma, colorectal, and more. Radiation therapy is an effective treatment that can be combined with surgery. This method beams cancer cells with waves such as X-rays or gamma rays that damage the genetic material in cancerous cells.

neurosurgery
Surgical

Surgery is the foundation of cancer treatment for most patients. It can be used on its own or combined with other treatments. Surgery can be used for diagnosing, staging, treating, debulking, and easing symptoms and side effects of cancer. We use minimally invasive cancer surgeries when possible, including cryosurgery, laparoscopic surgery, laser surgery, and microscopically controlled surgery. Our expert surgeons will discuss your options with you and find out if surgery is right for you.

Breast Cancer Care

Our team offers breast cancer surgery with many options that may be right for you. Our oncoplastic surgery prevents many women from requiring a mastectomy, while our radioactive seed localized breast surgery is used to identify problems at early stages. We utilize hidden scar surgery to minimize visible scarring. In addition, we also offer reconstructive breast surgery to restore one or both breasts after a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or congenital deformity.

Lung Cancer Care

Our lung cancer care center offers lung cancer screenings to detect the disease early on. We also have an interventional pulmonology program that treats lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. In addition, our smoking cessation program can help you be proactive and lower your chance of developing lung cancer by quitting smoking.

Cancer Rehabilitation

We’re here to help you move on after your cancer treatment. Cancer rehabilitation can decrease pain and improve your well-being. These treatments are designed to help you with the after-effects of cancer treatment. We treat lymphedema or the severe swelling of the arm, and our anodyne therapy uses light to increase local blood circulation to relieve pain and other symptoms.
