Cancer treatment options
According to the National Cancer Institute, there are more than 100 different types of cancer. At Community Oncology Center Kokomo, we treat all types of adult cancer including head and neck, breast, colorectal and prostate cancer. Our physicians and clinical staff are experts in treating cancer with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
All of our oncology nurses are OCN certified and have vast experience delivering medical oncology treatments (chemotherapy) in our infusion area. Our physicians are also hematologists who treat non-cancerous blood disorders with infusion services such as transfusions or antibiotic therapy.
Some cancer treatments call for radiation therapy. Under the direction of Dr. Tracy Price, the radiation oncology staff includes a radiation therapy nurse, physicist, dosimetrist, and several radiation therapists. Community Oncology Center Kokomo offers advanced, multi-modality radiation treatments:
External beam radiation therapy aims high-energy rays at the cancer and the immediate surrounding areas to destroy the main tumor and any nearby cancer cells.
Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a type of 3-dimensional radiation therapy in which beams of radiation of different intensities are aimed at the tumor from many angles using information from a 4-D CT scan. This treatment reduces the damage to healthy tissue near the tumor.
Image guided radiation therapy is an advanced imaging technology allows for precise treatment delivery through its capability to accurately focus the radiation on the target, making the radiation therapy more accurate, causing less damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
The Oncology Center also works closely with the Community Howard Imaging Center to coordinate mammograms and other imaging services for our patients.
