About Us (Why Choose Us)

We are committed to offering patients the latest advances in treatment. Our pioneering research efforts include the invention of three-dimensional treatment planning, now a standard practice worldwide. We have continued this research by developing a unique method of delivering intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). In addition to these technical developments, our scientists are designing better ways of combining medications with radiation so as to more effectively treat tumors, spare normal tissue from damage and minimize side effects.
