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.
