Our Cancer Services
Cancer surgeons at Excela Health use minimally invasive techniques for cancer care, which, for cancer patients, means less pain, less blood loss and quicker recovery.
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) targets the tumor, using computer-generated images to plan and focus a highly precise dose of radiation to individually-targeted sections of the tumor, so higher doses of radiation can be delivered to more irregular tumor volumes.
Prior to treatment, the PET/CT may be used to detect small cancers even before visible structural changes become evident, providing more data in less time and leading to faster, more accurate diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment monitoring.
Chemotherapy and Medical Treatment
Our nurses are oncology certified and located in each of our three locations -- the Arnold Palmer Pavilion at Mountain View, North Huntingdon and Mount Pleasant. Our nurses work in collaboration with your team of doctors to provide chemotherapy, iron infusions, growth factors to support red and white blood cell count, interferon, monoclonal antibodies, and others.
