Oswego Radiation Oncology
Seneca Hill Health Service Center
Oswego Health and SUNY Upstate Medical University have teamed up to bring radiation oncology services close to home for those living in the Oswego area. Oswego Radiation Oncology, an office affiliated with the Upstate Cancer Center, is conveniently located at the Seneca Hill Health Campus on County Route 45A.
The TrueBeam™ system is the latest advance in radiotherapy technology from Varian Medical Systems. And now this same advanced cancer treating system currently available at the Upstate Cancer Center, is available right here, “Close to home” in Oswego.
Cancer treatments are changing. The TrueBeam system is the latest advance in radiotherapy technology from Varian Medical Systems. Developed from the ground up to deliver powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision, TrueBeam opens the door to new possibilities for the treatment of challenging cases such as cancers in the lung, breast, abdomen, and head and neck as well as other cancers that are treatable with radiotherapy.
Treatments can be performed with unparalleled ease, precision and speed. In fact, most treatments take just a few minutes a day. As well as allowing for a more comfortable experience for patients with less time on the treatment couch, faster delivery also allows for reduced chances of patient motion during treatment.
TrueBeam was designed with many features that can improve the overall patient experience. With shorter treatment times and quieter operation, TrueBeam provides for a more comfortable environment for patients. Enhanced communication technology enables a constant interaction between the patient and the therapist who operates the equipment. Three closed-circuit television systems enable the therapist to monitor the patient at all times. Music can be played during treatment, helping to increase patient comfort.
Our commitment to excellence is evidenced by the expertise of our physicians and staff, state-of-the-art technology, efficient high quality care and unique capabilities. At Oswego Radiation Oncology we are committed to total patient care throughout the entire radiation therapy process - from the initial consultation to the completion of treatment and follow-up care.
Board certified radiation oncologists provide the backbone of this local service. All hold faculty appointments at the SUNY Upstate Medical University
Oswego Radiation Oncology maintains accreditation by the American College of Radiology and conforms to its rigid standards.
