What We Treat

Radiation therapy can be used as a sole treatment or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Our Radixact technology allows us to offer patients in our community the full range of advanced cancer care
treatment. The Radixact machine is a hybrid between a CT imaging scanner and an external beam radiation therapy machine, and the radiation used for both imaging and treatment can completely rotate around the
patient. This advanced treatment method can be utilized for a wide variety
of cancers, including —

  • Prostate Cancer​ ​
  • Gastrointestinal Cancers
  • ​Lung Cancer
  • ​Skin Cancer
  • ​Head & Neck Cancers​
  • Lymphoma
  • ​Brain Tumors
  • ​Primary Bone Cancer
  • ​GYN and Pelvic Cancers
  • ​Colorectal Cancer (Pancreas, Esophagus, Stomach)
