OhioHealth Invests In New Cancer Treatment In Delaware

1 Oct , 2021  

Special to 1808Delaware

In treating cancers of the brain, millimeters matter. A new radiation therapy program at the OhioHealth Delaware Medical Campus gives patients access to a sophisticated treatment with pinpoint accuracy, allowing higher doses with fewer side effects.

Known as stereotactic radiosurgery, the noninvasive therapy is being used in patients with cancer that has spread to the brain from other parts of the body. Not surgery in the traditional sense, stereotactic treatment aims radiation precisely at tumor sites, sparing nearby tissue. The therapy also is used to treat benign lesions.

By using the targeted treatment, specialists can safely administer higher doses of radiation in a much shorter time frame than is possible with traditional radiation therapy, which can take 10 to 30 sessions. Stereotactic therapy typically takes only one to three visits and produces fewer side effects such as memory loss, confusion and prolonged fatigue. This is especially important in older patients and those who already have been through multiple cancer treatments. More…
