    Radiation Oncology

    Radiation therapy is the use of precisely targeted radiation to treat benign and malignant tumors. Radiation destroys the ability of malignant cells to grow and divide and therefore is an effective modality in cancer treatment. Radiation therapy can be used on almost every part of the body and is often prescribed in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Our physicians work closely with other specialists to determine the most effective treatment plan.

    The Radiation Oncology Center offers a full spectrum of services, providing customized treatment for each and every patient.

    Located in a newly renovated facility, our Center offers a comfortable, patient-centered environment. By using advanced technology available to “map” tumors, our radiation oncologists can design treatments with millimeter accuracy, ensuring that tumors get the most effective dose and healthy tissues and organs are spared. Through the Sutter Health network of services, you have access to a wide range of treatments and procedures, including:

    • Conformal therapy
    • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
    • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
    • Active Breathing Coordinator
    • Brachytherapy and HDR Brachytherapy
    • Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiation (SABR)
