Physician Specialties

Radiation Oncology

A radiation oncologist is a physician who specializes in using radiation to treat cancer. Today’s radiation therapy is quicker, safer, and more precise than ever before.

Our radiation oncology team uses the most advanced treatment planning systems. State-of-the-art radiation technology is used to deliver internal and external radiation to cancerous cells, which prevents them from growing or dividing. Whether treatment plans include Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT), 3-D Radiation Therapy, or High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy, patients can receive radiation therapy from our physicians at Virginia Beach, Obici, Hampton, and Norfolk locations.
