Our radiosurgery, or radiation, program uses precise treatments to
safely treat tumors while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue.
Planning Your Radiosurgery Treatment
Saint Thomas Health provides cancer patients in the region with the option of stereotactic radiosurgery. We create a secure virtual operating room where a team of experienced cross-functional radiation oncologists and neurosurgeons collaborate from any physical location in real time to determine the most effective and personalized treatment approach for you.
Delivering Your Radiosurgery Treatment
Our radiation oncologists and surgeons locate and treat tumors and lesions with millimetric accuracy, allowing higher doses of radiation to be delivered in each treatment session, even to highly irregularly shaped tumors, while minimizing damage to critical organs and other surrounding areas in the body. Since no incision is necessary, most patients receive treatment on an outpatient basis, returning home the same day.
