Radiation oncology

Radiation oncology is a medical specialty that uses targeted, high-powered beams of energy to kill cancer cells. The physicians in White Plains Hospital's Department of Radiation Oncology use advanced technology to deliver these precise doses of radiation with pinpoint accuracy to treat tumors, minimizing the impact to surrounding healthy tissue.

Cancers treated include:

  • Breast cancer
  • Urologic cancers (prostate, bladder, kidney)
  • Thoracic (lung and esophageal cancers)
  • Head and neck cancers
  • Gastrointestinal tumors (colorectal, anal, pancreas, liver and bile duct)
  • Gynecologic cancers
  • Hematologic tumors (lymphomas, multiple myeloma)
  • Brain and spine tumors
  • Soft tissue sarcoma
  • Metastases
  • Skin cancers
  • Certain benign conditions (i.e. Dupuytren's disease, keloid)

Individualized cancer treatment plans are developed by a multidisciplinary team of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, geneticists and other cancer-related specialists.

Patients also have access to participate in a number of clinical trials.
