I am in need of Radiation Therapy.
Your cancer care team provides the most advanced radiation therapy available today, featuring state-of-the-art technologies that targets the radiation into tumors with more precision than ever before.
- Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), radiation of various intensities which shapes to the contours of your tumor from different angles. This treatment destroys tumor tissue while sparing normal tissue as much as possible.
- Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), treatment that uses advanced imaging technology like MRI or CT scans to safely and accurately deliver radiation precisely where it is needed.
- Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) uses finely focused radiation therapy to help minimize side effects to normal tissue
- Accelerated (Hypofractionated) Radiation Therapy, you can receive a higher dose of radiation delivered over a shorter period.
- Brachytherapy, involves the temporary or permanent implantation of radioactive substances to kill cancer cells. Can potentially reduce the length of treatment.
Preparing for cancer surgery.
If you’re having surgery, we’ll help guide you every step of the way — from pre-op to post-op, and beyond.
Generally, we ask that you:
- Do not eat anything after midnight the day of your surgery.
- Do not drink anything, including water, two hours before your surgery.
- Drink only 12 ounces (a cup and a half) of water from midnight up to two hours before your surgery time.
