Radiation therapy is an important treatment component for many cancer patients. Our radiation oncologists at both Memorial and Elkhart General work with a cohesive clinical team to deliver personalized radiation therapy in coordination with our surgical and medical oncology specialists. For each patient, an individualized, comprehensive and detailed treatment plan is created using CT scans that render tumor location in four dimensions, allowing the radiation oncologists, dosimetrists and radiation physicists to plan for accurate treatment delivery. From day one, our clinical team will guide you through each appointment, including daily treatment and follow-up care.
Patients like Sue deserve the most advanced treatment options available. And they shouldn’t have to leave their community to get them. At Beacon we offer treatments such as stereotactic ablative radiotherapy close to home. SABR is a non-invasive treatment that limits radiation exposure to other organs. The best part, according to Sue? “I had no side effects or pain.”
