The OSUCCC – James Department of Radiation Oncology provides cancer patients with leading-edge radiation therapy in a caring, supportive environment with internationally recognized medical expertise, education and research.
There is no such thing as a routine cancer, and every person’s disease is different, with individually unique genes and molecules driving that disorder. At the OSUCCC – James, our cancer subspecialists are world-renowned experts who reach across medical disciplines (medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, molecular and biological pathologists, genetic scientists and more) to design the very best treatment plan and therapies to target each patient’s specific disease.
Because radiation oncology touches nearly all cancer specialties and subspecialties, each diagnosis and treatment plan is led by an OSUCCC – James expert within that particular cancer. That specialist is also supported by a closely networked team of doctors, physicists, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, physician assistants, nurses and other professional support staff who work together to provide each patient with individualized, targeted treatment.
