Personalized Cancer Treatment
New Technology for Cancer Patients
In May, UNC Radiation Oncology in Smithfield installed a new linear accelerator inside the clinic at Johnston Medical Mall.
A multidisciplinary team of cancer professionals work closely together to review and discuss your care. You benefit from the insight of experts in several specialties, and you get the best possible treatment plan as your needs evolve.
Expect to receive recommendations for one or more of these treatments:
- Cancer medications, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and hormone therapy
- Radiation therapy, which uses advanced technology to target cancer cells and avoid healthy tissue
- Surgery to remove tumors from your body
- You may also have access to new treatment options through clinical trials.
