Introducing the most advanced technology in radiation therapy.
New radiation therapies have greatly enhanced our ability to treat
cancer more effectively. Today, more than half of patients with cancer
are treated with radiation therapy—the careful use of high-energy
radiation to destroy cancer cells in the body. At the Cancer
Center of Paoli Hospital, new advances in treatment
technologies, such as the TrueBeam™Linear
Accelerator, now enable us to more precisely target tumors,
minimizing treatment side effects and offering faster results than ever
before. The result is a more aggressive approach to cancer treatment
with improved quality of life.
Our state-of-the-art Radiation Oncology Services combine sophisticated
technology with compassionate care and comfort. We employ the latest in
treatment technology and amenities that increase patient comfort and
privacy. Our facility offers convenient, free parking, a private
entrance for radiation patients, extended hours and comforting treatment
areas. In addition, we work closely with the local American Cancer
Society to assist patients with transportation needs.
Board-certified radiation oncologists lead an experienced team of
licensed radiation therapists, oncology-certified nurses, PhD and
board-certified physicists and certified medical dosimetrists. They work
in conjunction with each patient's treatment team of medical
oncologists, surgeons, radiologists and other specialists to provide a
comprehensive, individualized program of care. Registered dietitians and
oncology social workers round out our cancer team to address each
patient's specific needs.
