Radiation Oncology

In radiation therapy, high-energy x-rays are used to treat cancer, either by destroying the cancer cells or by making them unable to grow and divide. In external radiation therapy, a machine called a linear accelerator is used to produce a beam of rays that is directed to the tumor or the part of your body that is being treated.

A team of skilled doctors, nurses, physicists, dosimetrists, and therapists plans and provides treatment designed especially for you. When you come for your first appointment, you will meet your nurse and doctor. They will review your records and x-rays, examine you, and explain why radiation treatments are recommended. Expect to spend about two hours during your first visit. Your radiation therapy will continue Monday through Friday for the number of treatments your doctor has prescribed.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to protect our most vulnerable patients, Windsong Breast Care has cancelled its Q & A sessions for 2020 and will be offering fully virtual sessions in 2021. Please know that during this difficult time our Breast Navigators and Surgeons are providing extra support for breast cancer patients. Questions, call 716.626.6300.
