Radiation therapy uses high-energy beams to destroy cancer cells. Many patients with cancer will require radiation as part of their treatment. Our radiation oncologists work closely with our colleagues in other disciplines to ensure that patients get the best possible treatment, individualized for their particular case.
We know that the prospect of receiving radiation therapy can be intimidating. Though the workings behind our treatments are sophisticated, our physicians, nurses, and therapists work hard to manage the experience as understandable and easy as possible for our patients, while delivering.
The Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System is made up of leading experts in the management of cancers of the prostate, breast, gastrointestinal tract, brain, and head and neck, in addition to lymphomas and sarcomas. Patient care is achieved through the combined efforts of highly trained professionals with extensive knowledge in the field of radiation therapy.
The UI Health Radiation Oncology Team includes a seasoned staff of experienced physicians, medical physicists, radiation therapists, nurses, and other dedicated team members who together provide the best care in treating patients with various forms of cancer. We understand that a cancer diagnosis can be an extremely stressful time in your life and your family's, and we want you to take comfort in knowing that we pay close attention to caring for all the needs that you may have. Within the Radiation Oncology department, you will find social workers and others that are devoted to working with you on your special needs.
