Cancer doctors usually treat cancer with radiation therapy, surgery or medications, including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and/or biologic therapy, either alone or in combination. If you cancer can be treated with radiation, you will be referred to a radiation oncologist – a doctor who specializes in treating patients with radiation therapy.
At Millennium Physicians, our skilled Radiation Oncologists, Dr. Berilgen, Dr. Patel, Dr. Jhaveri and Dr. Nena Mirkovic, will work with your primary doctor and other cancer specialists, such as surgeons and medical oncologists, to oversee your care. The physicians will discuss the details of your cancer with you, the role of radiation therapy in your overall treatment plan and what to expect from your treatment.
We use the latest and most advanced radiation therapy technology to treat cancer. Our radiation facility in The Woodlands is equipped with a Varian iX linear accelerator, for the latest state-of-the-art cancer treatment.
Our technology allows for less irradiation to normal tissue, thereby reducing the toxicity of radiotherapy and improving our patients’ quality of life. With this technology, it is possible for us to deliver a higher radiation dosage to the tumor and increase the likelihood of local tumor control.
