Jupiter Medical Specialists’ radiation oncologists collaborate closely with Jupiter Medical Center’s radiation specialty nurses, therapists, and other medical professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients with breast cancer from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship.
The Radiation Oncology Team
Our board-certified radiation oncologist has extensive experience in treatments that target breast cancer cells and spare as much nearby healthy tissue as possible.
State-of-the-Art Treatments and Technologies
Intraoperative Electron Radiotherapy (IOERT): IOERT can replace a 6 week course of radiation in a single treatment delivered at time of surgery. The radiation dose in IOERT is much smaller than that of external beam radiotherapy, limiting the damage to nearby normal organs and tissues.
Bionix® Prone Breast System: Jupiter Medical Center’s Radiation Oncology Center is one of the few facilities in the area to offer the Bionixprone breast system. Created with a focus on ensuring patient comfort, accuracy and ease of use, this system reduces irradiation to the chest wall, healthy cardiac tissue and the lungs.
TrueBeam Radiotherapy System: Used to treat many types of cancers, the TrueBeam™ precisely targets tumors with high doses of radiation while minimizing exposure to healthy surrounding tissue.
High Dose Rate Brachytherapy System (HDR): HDR technology uses a computer-controlled radioactive source for rapid delivery of pinpoint doses of radiation, limiting radiation exposure to normal tissues.
CyberKnife® M6™: Patients can complete treatment in one to five days, compared to the weeks it takes to complete a course of conventional radiation therapy. It is also an option for patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to surgery.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) with Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT): IMRT with IGRT treatment technology allows precise targeting of cancerous tissues while helping spare adjacent normal organs.
