Cancer Care

At Resurrection Health Care, our team of cancer experts includes surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and many other specialists, depending on the needs of our patients. These experts work together to provide comprehensive, individualized care for every cancer patient’s complex and varied needs.

State-of-the-Art Diagnostics

PET Scan — The latest major advance in imaging technology, PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scans allows for earlier diagnosis of cancers than any other technology. A wealth of information about the function of the body’s organs is provided—even at the cellular level.

This service is available at:

PET/CT Scan — A PET scan can be combined with computerized tomography in a revolutionary two-in-one medical imaging system that allows doctors to quickly determine whether cancer is present, if it is spreading, whether current treatment is working and/or if there is a recurrence.

This service is available at:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) — Among the most advanced of all diagnostic tools, MRI is a non-invasive technology utilizing a magnetic scanner, radio waves and computerized graphics to produce highly detailed images of body tissue.

This service is available at:

Computerized Tomography (CT Scan) — CT scans provide information about soft tissues within the body such as the liver, brain and lungs using computer-enhanced X-ray images.

This service is available at:

Nuclear Medicine — Nuclear medicine uses small doses of radiation to evaluate abnormalities within the body.

This service is available at:

Mammography — Mammograms are low-dose X-rays that provide images of breast tissue to detect abnormalities.

This service is available at:

Stereotactic Biopsy — A technology for the non-surgical evaluation of suspicious breast masses, stereotactic biopsies use computer interpretation of X-ray data to position a needle and retrieve tissue for analysis.

Advanced Treatments

TomoTherapy®: Image Guided Radiation Therapy — Our TomoTherapy Hi-Art System™ is the most advanced radiotherapy available. In one integrated unit, patients receive a CT scan and painless and precise radiation therapy. TomoTherapy is more accurate, has fewer side effects and offers patients the convenience of ongoing diagnosis and treatment in one comfortable location.

This service is available at:

IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) — Our state-of-the-art linear accelerator with IMRT treats tumors that might have been considered "too risky" or "untreatable" just a few years ago. This technology delivers a radiation dose that perfectly conforms to the three-dimensional (3-D) shape of a malignant tumor or to specific areas within the tumor while sparing normal tissue, allowing for higher doses of radiation to be delivered safely.

This service is available at:

Brachytherapy — High-dose-rate brachytherapy, an advanced form of radiation therapy, delivers a high dose of radiation therapy directly to the malignancy, bypassing intervening healthy tissue.

This service is available at:

MammoSite — MammoSite is an alternative to traditional radiation treatment after a patient has undergone a lumpectomy. Radiation is administered through a catheter in site-specific doses over the course of five days, rather than a number of weeks for traditional radiation therapy.

This service is available at:

Implant therapy — Seed implant therapy is an outpatient treatment option for early-stage prostate cancer and breast cancer. During this procedure, small radioactive “seeds” are implanted directly into the prostate gland or breast. Each seed, about the size of a rice grain, contains a low energy radiation source that destroys cancer cells without affecting nearby healthy tissue.

This service is available at:

Stereotactic radiosurgery — Stereotactic radiosurgery is a nonsurgical approach that uses a computer to aim highly focused beams of radiation directly at brain tumors and other abnormalities within the head.

This service is available at:

Surgery — Surgery to remove malignancies is the first step in some forms of cancer treatment, which may be performed conventionally and with electrocautery or lasers. Minimally invasive ablation surgery can be performed for patients with certain types of liver tumors.

This service is available at:

Chemotherapy — Chemotherapy, the use of medications to control cancer, may be administered orally, intravenously or by injection. Chemotherapy is provided on an outpatient and inpatient basis.
