At the University of Maryland, our radiation oncologists have pioneered new radiation treatment technologies, such as the GammaPod, for early-stage breast cancer. One of our widely-used precision treatment options is stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which pinpoints tumors with higher doses of radiation delivered in fewer treatment sessions while sparing nearby normal cells.
For patients with liver cancer, we have one of the most experienced selective internal radiation therapy centers in the country. We also offer brachytherapy, which safely delivers radiation from a source implanted into a tumor. At both the University of Maryland Medical Center and Maryland Proton Treatment Center, we provide hyperthermia therapy, which uses gentle heat before treatment to improve radiation therapy results.
Our team works with medical and surgical oncologists to provide comprehensive treatment plans that give our patients the best chance of beating their cancer type.
The Maryland Proton Treatment Center (MPTC) offers advanced pencil beam scanning proton therapy. MPTC's expert physicians are different, with more than 50 years of combined proton therapy experience treating all types of cancer. MPTC is the only healthcare center in Maryland to offer proton therapy and hyperthermia under one roof.
