Many Good Samaritan patients are benefiting from compassionate care at
the hospital's Radiation Oncology Department, where an outstanding
radiation oncologist and his team of technologists and other professionals
are providing safe and effective radiation treatments to eradicate cancers
of the brain, gastrointestinal system, lung, breast, prostate, bladder,
soft tissue and skin.
The Radiation Oncology department is equipped with a state-of-the-art
computer system to assist the physician in developing individualized treatment
plans. The department also offers a brachytherapy program, a unique therapy
that entails implantation of radioactive seeds in patients. This treatment
allows for delivery of high doses of radiation to the tumor with maximum
sparing of surrounding normal tissues, ie High-Dose Rate (HDR) treatment
for prostate cancer.
