Medical Oncology Services
As part of the renowned Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, Florida Hospital East Orlando relies on the experience and expertise of healthcare professionals dedicated to providing each and every patient with the skill and compassion on which Florida Hospital has staked its reputation for more than a century. The medical oncologists at Florida Hospital East Orlando are doctors who specialize in treating cancer using medications such as chemotherapy, hormones and analgesics. These experts are committed to involving patients and their loved ones in each step of the treatment process. For each treatment option, they will discuss with you the treatment’s duration, effectiveness and potential side effects.
Radiation Oncology Services
Florida Hospital East Orlando’s cutting-edge Radiation Oncology Center provides our cancer patients with some of the most advanced care available in Central Florida. Radiation treatments use high-energy particles or rays to kill cancer cells. However, there are several different types of radiation treatments, and not all of them are alike, either in terms of how they work or the kinds of side effects they may trigger. Our expert radiation oncologists have the skills and experience to help you figure out the radiation treatment that meets your needs, using a variety of sophisticated technologies that can localize and treat your specific cancer.
Some of the radiation services we offer include:
- 3D conformal therapy
- Fractioned stereotactic radiotherapy
- Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
- Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
- Low-dose-rate brachytherapy
- Prostate seed implants
In many cases surgery—often in combination with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy—is necessary to remove cancerous cells and surrounding tissue. The experienced surgeons at Florida Hospital East Orlando are experts in breast, colorectal and prostate cancer surgery.
