    Medical Oncology

    Medical oncology involves the entire spectrum of cancer care, which includes both the utilization of currently available technologies and the effort to search for newer treatments and diagnostic tools.

    A skilled and respected team is involved with the patient during each step of the care plan, from the moment of diagnosis and throughout the course of the disease by:

    • Informing each patient about cancer and the stages of its development
    • Involving each patient in the treatment options available and making recommendations
    • Monitoring the care and treatment of each patient, including the management of potential side effects from anti-cancer medication
    • Referring patients to other medical professionals as required
    • Referring patients to community resources and clinical trials

    Our board-certified medical oncologists and interdisciplinary team of specialist resources provide medical oncology services at the center. Our skilled medical oncologists and nurses work closely with other specialists in the center to determine the best course of treatment.

    Radiation Oncology

    Radiation therapy is used an integral treatment component for nearly two-thirds of all cancer patients. The most frequent cancer diagnoses treated include:

    • Breast
    • Gynecologic
    • Head and neck
    • Lung
    • Pain and symptom control
    • Prostate

    High energy X-rays have been successfully used for many decades to destroy cancer cells. Major medical advances have been made in the field of radiation oncology in recent years, and Sutter Health has made a commitment to continuously invest in state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to take advantage of such advances.
