Our approach to care

Centra's radiation oncologists plan and deliver precise dosages of targeted radiation to destroy cancer cells, shrink tumors or control the progression of your disease while sparing healthy surrounding cells. The goal of radiation oncology is to reduce or eliminate the viability of cancerous tumors and cells while allowing the surrounding normal cell structures to maintain function.
