Penrose Cancer Center Radiation Therapy incorporates comprehensive options, leading-edge technologies and world-renowned physicians for advanced treatment of cancer. * Radiation treatment plans and technologies are customized to each patient's individual needs, incorporating a highly effective dose of radiation to destroy cancer cells while sparing surrounding healthy tissue. * Depending on the location, size and type of tumor, treatment may include one or more therapies featuring various forms of external beam radiation to achieve the best outcomes for our patients. In addition to traditional radiation treatments, IMRT, Seed Implants and Brachytheraphy, PCC offers the only CyberKnife(r) treatment in Southern Colorado. With pinpoint accuracy, it attacks cancer from all angles using a focused beam of radiation and can treat tumors previously thought to be inoperable. This ultimate cancer-fighting technology can attack hard-to-reach tumors anywhere in the chest area as well as metastatic disease. This non-surgical alternative to cancer treatment involves no incisions, anesthesia or inpatient hospital stay , shorter treatment course (typically 1-5 visits) and little or no side effects. It is also often used post-surgery to eradicate any lingering disease and prevent future tumor re-growth.
