Philosophy of Care

I feel privileged to help people and families through some of their most difficult times. I think complete cancer care encompasses not only treating the malignancy, but also guiding the patient and their loved ones through the challenging journey. I am also a big believer in the team approach to medicine, from the primary care to all the specialists, and feel we are well-equipped to seamlessly collaborate on all of our oncology patients at DuPage Medical Group.

Radiation Therapy, through the linear accelerator, combines imaging, beam delivery and sophisticated motion management to accurately and precisely target tumors with speed

Topics and Subtopics: Cancer
By DuPage Medical Group Radiation Oncology
Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells. The radiation may be delivered by a machine outside the body (external-beam radiation therapy), or it may come from radioactive material placed in the body near cancer cells (internal radiation therapy, also called brachytherapy).
