Treatments We Offer

Chemotherapy

Treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

Radiotherapy

3D conformal radiation therapy is a cancer treatment that shapes the radiation beams to match the shape of the tumor.

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy places the radiation source as close as possible to the cancer cells so treatment is given over a short distance.

Our History
