Radiation Oncology

Leading technology, faster treatment
Dr. Jose Barba
Director of Radiation Oncology


Radiation oncology or radiotherapy is a localized, targeted treatment option that uses high energy rays to destroy cancer cells.

If radiation therapy is called for in your case - breast cancer, for example - our board-certified radiation oncologist and staff offer the most current treatment options. The Radiation Oncology Department also offers treatment with Mammosite catheter placement and treatment delivery, which enables some patients to receive their entire course of treatment in a much shorter interval. 

With our external beam and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), linear accelerator, GE CT Simulator, Ultrasound System and updated treatment planning computers, we offer state-of-the-art treatment planning and radiation therapy services.
