At Weill Cornell Radiation Oncology, we use x-rays and other forms of radiant or particular energy to treat tumors and certain benign conditions. Radiation may be used alone or in combination with one or both of the other modalities and is dramatically improving cancer cure rates. In fact, approximately 60 percent of cancer patients receive some form of radiation therapy during the course of their cancer treatment.
Our staff members use state-of-the-art equipment to deliver the most advanced care. Expert physicians and scientists work together to develop an individual treatment plan for each of our patients — one that will most effectively fight the cancer while sparing normal tissue as much as possible.
Our participation in basic and clinical research as well as many national clinical trials gives our patients access to the newest treatments, even before they are available at other treatment facilities. For the convenience of our patients, we offer services at two locations, the Stich Radiation Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center (Manhattan) and the Arnold Center for Radiation Oncology at New York Hospital Queens.
