Radiation Oncology

Radiation/Oncology

Radiation therapy is the use of precisely targeted radiation to treat benign and malignant tumors. Radiation destroys the ability of malignant cells to grow and divide and is often an effective aspect of cancer treatment. Radiation therapy can be used on almost every part of the body and is often prescribed in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Brian Goldsmith, MD, who is board-certified in both radiation oncology and palliative medicine, and Sharon Dutton, MD, board-certified in radiation oncology, work closely with other specialists to determine the most effective treatment plan.
