Radiation Oncology

UC Health Radiation Oncology provides outstanding care to patients with cancer. Our goal is to maximize the chances of a cure with as little physical and emotional trauma as possible. It is very important to us that our patients maintain as much comfort and dignity as possible as we help them fight their disease.

Our compassionate and dedicated team includes practicing radiation oncologists, masters level physicists, radiation therapists and other physicians who play key roles in the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute and the University of Cincinnati Gardner Neuroscience Institute. We also now offer proton therapy at our new proton therapy center in Liberty Township.

Groundbreaking Technology for the Most Advanced Cancer Care

UC Health Radiation Oncology delivers the most advanced level of care in the Greater Cincinnati area. Our state-of-the-art facilities house the latest in innovative technology, providing patients with fast, safe and effective treatments that are on the cutting edge of cancer care today.

We feature:

  • Vast experience in the use of stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of brain tumors
  • Tomotherapy, which combines precise CT-guided imaging with conformal radiation therapy for prostate and other forms of cancer
  • The region’s only proton therapy center housing the world’s only proton treatment gantry fully dedicated to basic proton research
  • Intensity-modulated radiation therapy allows for control of radiation, reducing radiation exposure to healthy surrounding tissue
  • 3-D conformal radiation uses specialized beams of radiation that are shaped to match the tumor
  • Superficial radiation therapy for skin cancer, a painless, noninvasive approach that results in less scarring
  • Complex brachytherapy, where radiation seeds are placed into or next to tumors, allowing high but localized doses of radiation to be delivered. This approach is particularly effective with prostate cancer, soft tissue sarcomas, cancers of the tongue base and oral tongue, brain tumors, ocular melanomas, gynecologic cancers, lung cancer, intra-abdominal tumors and pediatric cancers.

A Multidisciplinary and Collaborative Approach to Brain Tumors

UC Health Radiation Oncology has particular expertise in the area of central nervous system tumors. Our physicians work closely with the neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, oncologists and pathologists at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute to provide personalized care for patients with central nervous system tumors.

We also have substantial experience in the treatment of genitourinary cancer and prostate cancer, with physicians who subspecialize in each of these areas. In addition, our approach to head and neck cancers involves careful coordination with a team of head and neck surgeons, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists and medical oncologists. UC Health Radiation Oncology is a regional referral center for patients with these and many other challenging diseases.
