Radiation Oncology at Emory University Hospital Midtown

More than half of all cancers are treated with some form of radiation therapy.  This method of cancer treatment has a 50-year history with a success rate that has improved dramatically over that time - and continues to improve every day.  Continuing that tradition, Emory University Hospital Midtown's radiation oncology specialists are proud to be leaders in state-of-the-art innovation for radiation therapy.

For many patients with cancer, radiation is the only form of treatment that is required and can be used to shrink a tumor in almost any part of the body.  It also can be used in combination with other cancer treatments including chemotherapy and surgery.  Our radiation oncologists, consulting with your referring physician or oncologist, customize a treatment plan that is based on many factors including the type of cancer, your age and overall health condition.

Cancers that we treat include but are not limited to:

  • Adult brain tumors
  • Prostate cancer
  • Head and neck cancers
  • Gynecologic malignancies
  • Breast cancer
  • Skin cancers, lymphomas and sarcomas
