Medical Oncology Expertise

We customize medication therapies for each patient’s treatment plan. Our nurses provide compassionate and personalized care throughout your cancer experience.

Surgeons Treating the Person, not Just the Disease

Our surgeons perform many types of procedures to remove cancerous tumors and treat disease surgically. We have surgeons who are trained and certified in oncoplastic surgery for breast cancer. That means while we focus on ridding you of the cancer, we also focus on restoring emotional healing with better cosmetic outcomes.

Our surgeons excel at performing minimally invasive procedures and using the hidden scar technique, whenever possible. As one surgeon expressed, “In a perfect world, the patient can’t tell that I even did surgery.”

The surgeons are an integral part of the cancer care team. We spend a lot of time with each patient educating you about your cancer diagnosis and the best surgical treatment approach. It’s a coordinated effort with the radiation oncologist, medical oncologist and all care team members.

Radiation Oncology has High-tech Advantages

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. Radiotherapy is often given in combination with surgery or chemotherapy to more successfully destroy cancer. Our highly experienced radiation oncologists offer targeted, precision radiation therapies:

  • CT-based treatment planning
  • 3D Conformal Radiation Therapy
  • External Beam Radiation Therapy
  • Brachytherapy - high dose rate (HDR) and low dose rate (LDR)
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT)
  • Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
  • Radiosurgery to treat brain tumors
  • Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT)
