Cutting Edge Technology
In the past, individuals had to travel abroad to receive the latest advances in radiation oncology. But we are proud to announce that we are the first and only radiation oncology center in the New York area to acquire the Elekta Infinity with Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) technology. Why is this so important? With this technology we are able to monitor cancer treatment in real-time 3D imaging, and provide the most precise radiation treatment possible. This means a reduced treatment time for the patient, with less healthy tissue affected by radiation. So you receive a quicker treatment with better results.
Want to learn more about this exciting innovation in radiation oncology, and what it can mean for your recovery? Call us today to request a consultation.
Radiation Oncology uses high energy x-rays from a linear accelerator outside the body, or radioactive “seeds” placed inside the body to kill cancer cells. If you are receiving treatment from a linear accelerator, you will feel nothing, it is just like when you receive an x-ray. The treatments will probably take around 10-15 minutes. Depending on your personal situation, radiation protocols can be as short as 5-days to a period of a few weeks.
Optimal Healing Environment
The Farber Center for Radiation Oncology has also created the “Optimal Healing Environment” program to support our patients’ well-being as they go through radiation. Our goal is to not only provide the best medical treatments available but the best programs for mind, body and spirit. Many of our patients have found that the tools they are given continue to improve their quality of life even after radiation therapy is completed. The Optimal Healing Environment program is complementary to all Farber Center patients.
