Our treatment philosophy is rooted in teamwork, ease of access and patient empowerment. Recognizing that each patient’s oncology needs are unique, we offer a full range of treatment options to meet the specific needs of each patient.

We know that our patients are an important part of the decision-making process, so wherever possible, we encourage all individuals to review their options with their clinicians and radiation oncology team and select the evidence-based cancer treatment best suited to their needs.

Team Approach to Care

We use a team approach as our foundation for delivering cancer services. Embracing a team approach that involves the patient every step of the way allows us to pave the way for superior outcomes, increased patient satisfaction and, most important of all, a higher rate of survivorship.

We also work with teams in other departments as necessary, such as hematology, cancer services and our Familial Cancer Risk Assessment Center. This collaboration allows us to provide personalized, compassionate care to patients. This same multidisciplinary approach also extends to post-cancer care.

Accreditation and Research

Lahey’s Radiation Oncology program is accredited by the American College of Radiology. We also conduct patient-centered, innovative clinical trials to help discover the latest advances in treating cancer and other conditions with radiation therapy.
