Radiation Therapy for Pancreatic Cancer

 

Radiation therapy involves using specialized machinery to deliver radiation – the same type of energy in sunlight – to the tumor, destroying cancerous cells. Radiation therapy isn’t always a viable treatment for pancreatic cancer, but it may be appropriate in some cases. We offer a number of radiation therapy treatments at our cancer centers:

 

  • CyberKnife: Our flagship treatment, the CyberKnife system combines some of the most advanced medical technology on the market to create a highly-effective cancer treatment.
  • TrueBeam: TrueBeam offers precision radiation therapy to fight tumors almost anywhere in the body.
  • TomoTherapy: With a circular delivery device, TomoTherapy allows for delivery of low-dose radiation anywhere in the body from any angle.

 

Other Treatment Options for Pancreatic Cancer

 

In addition to radiation therapy, we offer a number of other treatments:

 

  • Chemotherapy: This treatment uses specialized drugs that attack fast-growing cells anywhere in the body, making it a good option for cancers that have spread throughout the body.
  • Targeted Therapy: This is similar to chemotherapy, but uses newer drugs that may produce less intense side effects.
  • Immunotherapy: This method uses drugs that stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cells.
  • Surgery: Surgical resection is a common treatment for pancreatic cancer and can be effective in the early stages.
