Radiation is a type of treatment that is used to shrink tumors and stop the growth of cancer cells.

Our radiation oncology program is focused on using the latest technologies to provide highly individualized treatment for patients.

High energy x-rays are aimed directly at cancerous cells or tumors. The technique is so effective in treating certain types of cancer that nearly two-thirds of patients will receive radiation therapy, according to the American Society for Radiation Oncology.

Radiation can be used as a stand-alone treatment, and often it is the only treatment needed. Radiation is also used in combination with surgery, chemotherapy and other targeted therapies. For example, doctors can use radiation before surgery to shrink a tumor or after surgery to stop the growth of remaining cancer cells.

As a patient, you have access to multidisciplinary teams working together on cancer care, research, prevention and education.
