Cancer Treatment

A Powerful Array of Cancer-Fighting Techniques

Cancer is typically treated through a combination of approaches. Truly state-of-the-art cancer care requires the collaborative efforts of experienced professionals who know the current literature and keep up with the availability of the most up-to-date treatments. Thanks to our research program, we can offer our patients new, promising, and potentially more effective treatments, as we have for more than 30 years.

The experts at MarinHealth are skilled at explaining complex medical conditions so that patients and their families can make treatment decisions that are right for them. Decisions must reflect the current science and incorporate the patient’s values, goals, and wishes.

Cancer Surgery

Surgery may be used to diagnose and/or remove tumors. We offer a wide range of sophisticated surgeries, and our surgeons and interventional radiologists excel at both traditional and minimally invasive procedures. Learn more about cancer surgery.

Medical Oncology

Medical oncology refers to any cancer treatment other than surgery or radiation. Medical oncologists use a variety of techniques to combat cancer, including endocrine therapy, chemotherapy, biologics, and targeted therapies. Learn more about medical oncology.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy works by damaging the DNA in cancer cells while allowing normal tissue to recover. The cancer cells stop dividing and die, shrinking the tumor. Learn more about radiation treatments.

Radiotherapy: TrueBeam™ Radiotherapy

Faster to administer than conventional radiotherapy, the TrueBeam™ radiotherapy system rotates around the patient to deliver powerful, specifically targeted beams of radiation with pinpoint accuracy. The power and flexibility of TrueBeam™ allows clinicians to tailor treatment to each patient's individual circumstances. The system can be used to treat a diverse range of cancers, including tumors of the lung, breast, head and neck, abdomen, liver, and other regions. Learn more about TrueBeam™ Radiotherapy.
