As part of the cancer care multidisciplinary team, our surgeons coordinate care with oncologists, radiologists and pathologists to help decide the best course of treatment for each patient.
Treatments for Cancer Care
As part of the cancer care multidisciplinary team, our radiation oncologists coordinate every aspect of care with surgeons and pathologists to help decide the best course of treatment for each patient.
CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system commonly used for the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors in the brain or the base of the skull.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is the most advanced form of external beam radiation therapy available for cancer treatment today. It delivers a high dose of radiation to well-defined cancerous tissue while avoiding the healthy tissue surrounding the tumor.
Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) integrates a lumpectomy (the removal of a tumor from the breast) and radiation treatment into a single surgery.
"Stereotactic" in Greek means "movement in space" and refers here to the way your radiation oncologist locates the tumor or target of a radiation dose by means of a 3-D coordinate system.
Many cancerous and non-cancerous brain tumors can be effectively treated with stereotactic radiosurgy (SRS).

The robotic surgical system uses robotic computer technology providing breakthrough minimally invasive surgical capabilities that offer many benefits.
Lymphedema rehabilitation focuses on teaching patients how to effectively manage lymphedema or secondary lymphedema on an independent basis through intensive one-on-one training.
Biotherapy (also called biological therapy or immunotherapy) is a treatment to activate or repair the ability of the body’s immune system to fight cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, infections, and other diseases.
Chemotherapy is the treatment of cancer with cytotoxic drugs.
Chemicals called hormones are produced in glands in the reproductive system, in the ovaries for women and the testicles for men.
Hyperthermia is a specialized therapy that involves heating selected tumors to 106 to 108 degrees for up to one hour. Hyperthermia can be delivered in combination with radiotherapy.
