A radiation oncologist is a physician who specializes in using radiation to treat cancer. Today’s radiation therapy is quicker, safer and more precise than ever before.
Our Radiation Oncology team uses the most advanced treatment planning systems. State-of-the-art radiation technology is used to deliver internal and external radiation to cancerous cells, which prevents them from growing or dividing. Whether treatment plans include Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), 3-D Radiation Therapy, or High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy, patients can receive radiation therapy from our physicians at Lake Wright, Princess Anne, Obici, Hampton and Elizabeth City locations.
The Radiation Oncology team at VOA is board-certified and experienced in caring for cancer patients. They are leaders in the development of new approaches to cancer care, and are supported by friendly and knowledgeable nurses, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, physicists, pharmacists, counselors and other specialists who work together to coordinate complete and compassionate care.
