The Benefits of Interventional Oncology Treatment in New York
Interventional oncology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer using targeted minimally invasive procedures performed under image guidance. AT USA Oncology Centers, your liver cancer care and treatment is designed to fit your specific needs.
Y-90 SIRT, depending on your unique situation, can target liver tumors directly with high doses of radiation while sparing healthy tissue and reducing injury to the liver. At USA Oncology Centers, your Y-90 SIRT treatment can be completed between cycles of chemotherapy, which minimizes disruption of any other treatments.
Y-90 SIRT is also used to treat liver tumors that cannot be removed with surgery. Tumors that have spread to the liver can be targeted precisely and effectively with Y-90 SIRT.
In addition, Y-90 SIRT is tolerated very well by patients, and a vast majority of side effects are considered mild. Clinical trials show that Y-90 SIRT can significantly extend a patient’s overall survival and improve their quality of life.
If you are a candidate for Transarterial Chemoembolization or (TACE), a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment for liver cancer, you will have the benefit of receiving local chemotherapy with a procedure called embolization.
An added benefit is that TACE attacks the cancer by delivering a high concentration of chemotherapy directly into the tumor. It does this without exposing the entire body to the effects of those drugs. The procedure then cuts off the blood supply to the tumor, trapping the anti-cancer drugs at the site and depriving the tumor of the oxygen and nutrients it needs to grow.
The benefits of a TACE treatment typically last for 10 to 14 months, depending on the type of tumor. The TACE treatment can also be repeated if the cancer starts to grow again. You can also combine TACE with other types of therapy if it’s recommended by your oncologist.
Comprehensive Treatment Management
Cancer treatment is complex, and when someone is diagnosed with cancer, or learns that the cancer has spread, it can feel overwhelming. At USA Oncology Centers, we treat the whole person: mind, body and spirit. We are commit ourselves to our patients by educating them about their treatment options and being their partner in making decisions and planning care.
Our Comprehensive Treatment Management approach blends changes in lifestyle habits and daily diet, physical exercises, and physical therapies with psychophysical techniques. We focus on living well with cancer by offering treatments that promote a better quality of life.
USA Oncology Centers provides non-surgical ablation therapy for liver, kidney, and lung cancer. These procedures, typically performed under ultrasound, MRI, or computed tomography (CT) guidance allows your interventional radiologist to insert a needle through to burn or freeze the tumor. The sophistication of the imaging equipment used for guidance allows for precise targeting of the tumor. As with the intraarterial therapies, healthy tissue is left untouched.
