Radiation Therapy for Prostate Cancer

Radiation therapy is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that uses radiation to kill cancer cells and eliminate tumors. We offer three radiation therapy treatments from our cancer care centers:

  • CyberKnife: Combining advanced technology from multiple areas of medicine, CyberKnife is our flagship treatment and a powerful cancer-fighting system.
  • TomoTherapy: TomoTherapy uses a circular radiation delivery device, making it easy to deliver low-dose radiation anywhere in the body.
  • TrueBeam: TrueBeam uses advanced medical imaging technology to target radiation with precision accuracy.

Other Treatment Options for Pancreatic Cancer

We strive to use noninvasive radiation therapy whenever possible, but it’s not right for every patient. We offer a number of other treatments for pancreatic cancer, including:

  • Chemotherapy: A method that uses pharmaceutical drugs to target fast-growing cells anywhere in the body, making it a powerful treatment for cancers that have spread.
  • Surgery: If the tumor is still confined only to the prostate, surgical resection is sometimes the best option.
  • Targeted Therapy: This method is similar to chemotherapy, but uses newer drugs that may have fewer side effects.
  • Immunotherapy: A method that uses drugs to stimulate the immune system to attack the cancer cells on its own.
