Department of Radiation Oncology
Our skilled Radiation Oncologists use the most advanced therapies to treat patients with melanoma, squamous cell skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and other malignant skin conditions with radiation therapy.
Many lesions can be removed through surgical intervention, however conformal radiation therapy may also be necessary for optimal disease control. In some cases, radiation treatment may be used as the primary treatment modality for patients presenting with basal and squamous cell carcinoma in the head and neck regions and for those whose cancer has spread to the lymph nodes.
The Department of Radiation Oncology also specializes in the treatment of uveal intra-ocular melanoma with proton therapy.
Our Radiation Oncologists work closely with our colleagues at the Mass General Cancer Center to improve patient outcomes through multidisciplinary care. Our cross-specialty approach enables us to provide comprehensive and individualized care for our patients.
Every step of your treatment is managed by one or our work-class physicians:
