Innovative technology has taken those of us who treat cancer to heights we once only imagined. At Allegheny Health, we continue to expand its role in cancer care by employing highly sophisticated technologies, some of which we have been among the first in the country to utilize.
Our array of advanced therapeutic options allows us to tailor each patient's treatment plan according to his or her specific needs. By working together with surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, physicists, radiation therapists, nurses, social workers, nutritionists, integrated medicine specialists and other healthcare professionals, the radiation oncologists at Allegheny Health are able to offer patients a cohesive and personalized treatment plan.
We provide treatments for patients with cancer of the brain, breast, cervix, colon, eye and orbit, head and neck, kidney, liver, lung, lymphatic system, ovaries, prostate, rectum, skin, soft tissue, testes and uterus, as well as for those with Hodgkin's disease, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and musculoskeletal cancer.
With the breakthrough of advanced computer software and state-of-the art linear accelerator technology, our highly skilled team can administer high-dose radiation beams directly to a tumor while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue and organs.
