At Hall-Perrine Cancer Center, we understand you will have a lot of questions before and during your treatment. Begin by finding out which cancers we treat and what to expect from your team, including how you could be involved in clinical trials and research.
When you are ready to begin treatment, you'll receive the latest, most effective cancer technologies that Hall-Perrine physicians use to help fight each patient's unique battle with cancer. As part of a comprehensive approach, your physician may suggest one or a combination of the following:
- Chemotherapy to cure cancer, keep it from spreading, slow its growth or relieve cancer symptoms.
- Radiation therapy at Hall Radiation Center, the area’s first and only radiation center, that provides treatment to prevent cancer cells from
growing and multiplying. The goal of radiation therapy is to slow, stop and destroy the tumor.
- TomoTherapy® treats hard-to-reach tumors that often sit close to healthy tissues and organs. It delivers painless and precise radiation therapy based on a carefully customized plan for each patient, while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues.
- Trilogy Linear Accelerator is the most advanced, versatile machine of its type in the world. It delivers higher doses of radiation to tumors in shorter time, while minimizing the damage to surrounding normal tissues and organs.
- High-Dose Rate Brachytherapy places a radioactive source via a catheter into the tumor to avoid damaging healthy tissue, potentially destroying more cancer cells with fewer treatments.
- MammoSite® High-Dose Rate Radiation Therapy is a form of Brachytherapy used to treat breast cancer by utilizing a small applicator placed into the breast cavity, allowing treatment to be completed in one week.
- Prostate Seed Implants is a form of Brachytherapy used to treat prostate cancer by injecting small permanent radiation seeds to a targeted treatment area.
- Cancer Surgery (daVinci® Robotic Surgery) enables surgeons to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures with very
small incisions while minimizing blood loss and improved recovery times.
