Chemotherapy is one form of cancer treatment that we offer at Summit Healthcare Cancer Center. Chemotherapy works by destroying cancerous cells and is typically the primary choice in cancer treatment. Chemotherapy is a customized aspect of cancer treatment that may be recommended for a wide range of situations. This treatment may also be combined with other forms of treatment including radiation. Our chemotherapy department sees approximately 4,800 patients per year and offers patients a “family environment”.
Radiation therapy, also known as radiation oncology, uses radiation to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying. Our oncologists can deliver radiation with incredible accuracy which allows them to target tumors while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Radiation therapy may be able to eliminate the need for surgery to remove cancer.
