Radiation oncology focuses on using radiation to treat cancer and other diseases. Depending on a patient’s condition, the goal of radiation therapy may be to shrink or destroy a tumor or to slow its growth. Radiation may be delivered by a machine, outside the body, via external beam radiation therapy or, internally, using radiation seed implants or brachytherapy. At Saratoga Hospital, radiation oncology is provided at our Mollie Wilmot Radiation Oncology Center. Our radiation oncologists work closely with a team of healthcare professionals – medical physicists, dosimetrists, radiation oncology nurses, radiation therapists, and social workers – to provide care that is of the highest quality and addresses the needs of each patient as an individual.
