Medical oncology includes treatments such as chemotherapy, infusion, hormonal therapy, biological therapy and targeted therapy. In addition, our team includes highly-specialized breast oncologists and gynecologic oncologists for diagnosing and treating cancers. Gynecologic oncologists have completed obstetrics and gynecology residency and then pursued sub-specialty training through a gynecologic oncology fellowship. This treatment is provided to patients by Our Lady of Lake.
Radiation oncology uses different types of radiation, including X-rays, gamma rays, or electrons, to treat cancers and may be used in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Innovative techniques, such as breath hold and brachytherapy, can improve care for breast and gynecological cancer patients. At the Breast & GYN Cancer Pavilion, radiation oncology services are provided by Woman’s Hospital and Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center.
Gamma Knife Icon (GKI) is an innovative, noninvasive radiosurgery technology for the treatment of primary brain tumors, brain metastases, and other central nervous system conditions. The first of its kind in the Gulf South, GKI treats only the parts of the brain that need it, enhancing quality of life. To learn more about the Gamma Knife Icon, click here.
Clinical trials enhance standard cancer treatments, resulting in improved patient outcomes and survival rates. We conduct oncology clinical trials to test new drugs or a new combination of drug treatments, new surgery and radiation therapies, and new medical devices. A drug must be part of a clinical trial before the FDA will approve it to be put on the market.
