The Florida Hospital Cancer Institute provides a full array of innovative medical procedures — including advanced radiation treatments — that shorten recovery times and improve overall outcomes. Our elite radiation oncology team ensures that patients have the highest level of care and ongoing support throughout their treatment.

Brain & Spine Cancer

For brain and spine cancers, Florida Hospital is the only hospital in Central Florida using Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery, which targets and treats tumors while leaving surrounding tissue intact. No other non-invasive treatment method in this field has greater clinical acceptance. We also offer stereotactic radiosurgery for the spine.The most advanced form of radiation therapy available, IGRT enables doctors to precisely locate and visualize the tumor before each dose is administered. Our state-of-the-art delivery system enables doctors to choose the most appropriate treatment for treating cancer in the body, head or neck, and deliver treatments all on one machine in a single room.

Breast Cancer

For early stage disease, hypofractionation and intraoperative radiation are used to shorten our patients’ overall treatment time. We also utilize several innovative techniques that allow us to protect the heart during radiation therapy.

Gastrointestinal Cancer

For patients with pancreatic cancer, liver cancer, or metastasis to the liver, we provide two innovative procedures. Stereotactic body radiation therapy is used for small, early stage tumors and reduces treatment time. And radioembolization therapy targets large or multiple liver tumors.

Gynecologic Cancer

We offer MRI-guided HDR brachytherapy to deliver targeted radiation therapy to advanced gynecologic cancers while often avoiding the need for surgical removal of organs.

 

Lung Cancer

Our state-of-the-art procedure for thoracic cancer targets small lung tumors with three to five high doses of radiation.

Pediatric Cancer

We have a dedicated pediatric radiation oncologist combined with cutting-edge technology in a compassionate and friendly environment providing the most advanced care to treat children with cancer.
