Cancer Treatments

Cancer Center Doctor with PatientAt Lexington Medical Center, we apply a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment. Different specialists work together as a team to provide the best possible treatment plan for you after meeting with you in a clinical setting and reviewing your diagnostic imaging results. 

Hematology and Medical Oncology

  • Diagnosis and treatment of cancer
  • Treatment of benign and malignant blood disorders
  • Individual chemotherapy treatment areas
  • Patient consultations
  • Participation in clinical trials and research
  • Laboratory services

Radiation Oncology

  • Patient Consultations
  • Conventional radiation therapy: External beam radiation assures uniform doses of radiation to the targeted area
  • Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT): Controls the intensity of the radiation beam within a given area, allowing a higher dose of radiation to the given area, allowing a higher dose of radiation to the tumor while avoiding normal tissue
  • CT Simulation: The most accurate process available to localize, define and reconstruct a patient's tumor, allowing the radiation oncologist to design a treatment plan unique to each patient's anatomy
