Delivering treatment directly to the tumor
We know from recent research that tumors are most likely to return to the original cancer site. That's why we use targeted, partial breast radiation following a lumpectomy. With as few as five days of radiation, the combination of treatments is just as effective as whole breast radiation. And it offers women options other than a total mastectomy to avoid weeks of radiation treatments.
Only at Goshen Center for Cancer Care can you find a facility that offers four different types of this treatment following a lumpectomy. Three treatments – MammoSite®, SAVI® and Contura® MLB System – are delivered internally through high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy. And one, 3D conformal therapy, is delivered externally. Each treatment is completed in days rather than weeks. And all target the tumor, while sparing healthy tissue.
