Interventional radiology for cancer treatment

Unique to our cancer center is our expertise in minimally invasive interventional radiology for treating several types of cancer, including liver, breast and colon cancer.

Interventional radiology is a subspecialty of radiology in which minimally invasive procedures are performed using image guidance, including X–rays and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our interventional radiologists specialize in using these and other nonsurgical techniques for targeted treatments.

Neuro-oncology program

If you have been diagnosed with a brain or spinal cord tumor, it is critical for you to see a highly trained neurosurgeon with experience in treating these conditions.

Our surgical team is a leader neuro-oncology, using new and innovative treatment methods to evaluate, diagnose and remove brain and spinal cord tumors.

Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT)

LITT is a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive surgical technique for treating brain tumors. It allows neurosurgeons to gently and precisely use a robotically-driven laser to destroy tumor tissue using real-time MRI guidance.

Benefits of LITT include:

  • A leading-edge option for inoperable or recurrent brain tumors, radiation necrosis or tumors in medically-fragile patients
  • Minimally invasive with an incision smaller than a centimeter
  • Real-time MRI thermography allows the neurosurgeon to monitor tissue temperature while robotically steering laser light to ablate (destroy) unwanted tissue
  • Faster recovery and same-day hospital discharge
