Personalized Chemotherapy/Infusion Therapy
- Each dose is specific to you. Your doctor determines the appropriate drugs and doses based on your health status, blood work, and other factors. These may change from one visit to the next, so we can't prepare your infusion in advance.
- Following the 'recipe' is critical. With these powerful drugs, the pharmacist must be 100-percent accurate when preparing your infusion.
- Each dose must be sterile. Using sterile supplies and aseptic, or germ-free, techniques helps keep your infusion free of germs.
- Infusion drugs require careful handling. Contact with these drugs may be harmful to anyone who is not supposed to receive them.
Radiation therapy involves the use of ionizing radiation as part of cancer treatment to control malignant cells. Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) is a treatment that delivers high doses of radiation directly to cancer cells in a targeted beam. This technology is much more precise than conventional radiation therapy, so it can deliver higher doses directly to cancer cells, while sparing much of the surrounding healthy tissue. Clinical studies indicate that these higher dosages are associated with improved control of tumors while reducing complication rates. Our radiotherapy technology can cut treatment time by more than half, making it much less taxing for patients. Stereotactic Body Radio Therapy (SBRT) technology offers highly targeted radiation in fewer doses.
Chemotherapy is a general term for treatments that use medications to kill cancer cells. Many different kinds of drugs are used, either alone or in combination, to treat different cancers. The specific drug or combination used is chosen to best combat the type and extent of cancer present. Our medical oncologists also utilize a proactive approach to manage common side effects of chemotherapy.
Chemo embolization is a minimally invasive technique that delivers high dosages of cancer killing drugs directly into a tumor while blocking the arteries that feed the tumor.
