Medical Oncology focuses on treatment of cancer with chemotherapy, immunotherapy and hormonal therapy.
Radiation Therapy is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.
It utilizes the Tomotherapy Machine which combines a form of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), with the accuracy of computed tomography (CT) scanning technology in one machine. The “slice therapy” approach treats tumors one layer at a time.
Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy where a sealed radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. It is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, and skin cancer and can be used to treat tumors in many other body sites.
Chemotherapy the treatment of cancer using a prescribed chemotherapy drug or combination of drugs.
Blood Transfusion a procedure in which whole blood or parts of the blood are infused into a patient’s bloodstream through a vein commonly administered for treatment of diseases that slows down your body’s production of blood cells.
Bone Marrow Aspiration a procedure in which a small sample of bone marrow is removed usually from the hip bone, breastbone, or thigh bone for the purpose of evaluating red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs) and platelets.
Palliative and Hospice Care is the palliation of symptoms and maximizing quality of life rendered to terminally ill patients. This may consist of pain management, nutrition medicine, psycho-emotional and spiritual support.
