This sub-specialty of internal medicine involves chemotherapy and other non-radiation and non-surgical treatments for cancer. Often, the medical oncologist will direct cancer treatment for adult patients.

Radiation Oncology

The radiation oncology team at St. Vincent's includes experienced physicians, a radiation physicist, radiation therapists, and radiation therapy nurses. Treatments include 3-D planning, the latest in digital linear accelerators for precision radiotherapy, and special procedures like IMRT, IGRT, brachytherapy, prostate seed implants, external beam radiation treatments, and more.
