Treatment

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. Physicians have been treating patients with radiation therapy safely and effectively for more than 100 years. Estimates are that nearly two-thirds of patients with cancer are treated with radiation during their illness and also to prevent relapse. External beam radiation therapy uses a high-energy x-ray machine — called a linear accelerator (linac) — to direct radiation to the tumor. It is a cancer treatment modality that uses doses of radiation to destroy cancerous cells.

Medical Oncology

Medical Oncology

The medical oncology department deals with the treatment of cancer using drugs (chemotherapy). It is called a “systemic treatment” because the drug, entering through the blood stream, travels throughout the body and kills cancer cells at their sites. The drugs in most cases destroy cancer cells wherever they may exist in the body. Chemotherapy may be the only treatment, or it may be supplemented with other treatments, such as surgery and/or radiation therapy. It is an important modality in treating various cancers and has a curative role in lymphomas.

Surgical Oncology

The mission and objective of the surgical oncology department of MIO is to provide the latest treatment in a compassionate environment. Our surgeons are highly trained and motivated and perform the removal of complex tumors along with cosmetically accepted reconstruction procedures with the able support of equally supportive anesthetists, recovery and ICU staff. They also work with medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, nutritionists and other team members to ensure the best result for each patient.
