Radiation therapy is often combined with other cancer treatments -- including surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy – to destroy cancer cells, shrink the tumor, and reduce the risk that your cancer will return. It may also be used as a palliative treatment to alleviate pain and symptoms caused by metastatic cancer.

If radiation therapy is part of your cancer treatment plan, your medical oncologist and surgical oncologist will work with your radiation oncologist to determine the timing and type of radiation treatment that is right for your condition.

We use the latest techniques to accurately target your radiation therapy to your cancer and minimize exposure of your healthy tissue to radiation.
