If radiation therapy is part of your cancer treatment, Ascension’s individualized plans, team of experts and full range of services can help.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy waves or particles (such as X-rays or gamma rays) to destroy cancer cells, and can be used alone or in combination with other methods. If your cancer treatment includes radiation therapy, rest assured that our advanced technology and full range of services are just the beginning of care at Ascension.
Our radiation and cancer specialists work together to pinpoint the location and specifics of your cancer. From there they can create a comprehensive treatment plan customized for you that effectively targets cancer cells while minimizing damage to healthy tissue.
Just as importantly, our experienced team works closely with you to help you understand your full health picture and what to expect during treatment. From the first consultation to therapy and follow-ups to monitor your progress, we provide the compassionate care you need at every step of your treatment.
