Advanced ROS Treatment Services

Radiation oncology is the medical specialty in which high-energy X-rays or particles are used to gradually kill cancer cells so they are unable to grow, multiply, and spread. Radiation therapy can cure some cancers and has greatly contributed to patient survival rates. Radiation therapy may be combined with surgery and/or chemotherapy to help bring about control of the disease and/or relief of symptoms.

With our top-notch treatment team, careful planning and state-of-the-art technology, we can provide cancer patients with the most effective radiation therapy treatment available anywhere.
