We now have the ability to tailor treatment to the individual, taking into account any changes in the tumor or the patient’s own anatomy. These approaches enable us to reduce radiation exposure and more precisely target the treatment area without affecting healthy tissue.
Our patients also benefit from a highly coordinated multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Columbia’s leading experts in radiation and oncology collaborate with renowned surgeons and medical oncologists to provide guidance and support at every step of the treatment process. Our goal is to deliver the very latest therapies in an environment conducive to optimal healing.
We are proud to be part of the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our Cancer Center is one of the few internationally recognized by the National Cancer Institute. Our NCI-Designated partners have worked together to strengthen one another’s programs and research endeavors to new levels that allow us to establish best practices and cutting edge therapies allowing us to provide outstanding patient care.
