Chemotherapy can play a role in your colon treatment to stop cancer cells from growing and dividing through the use of specialized medications. Additionally, your physician may recommend combining drug therapy with other treatment options, like radiation and surgery.

During radiation therapy, your care team uses high-energy X-rays to destroy cancerous cells. Using sophisticated radiation technology, we can target colorectal cancer tumors with amazing precision, easing your pain. Depending on your diagnosis, your dedicated team may recommend radiation alone, but in many cases, we combine it with surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments.
