Led by cancer treatment physicians and specialists, our Cancer Center team is comprised of a dedicated, experienced staff chosen especially for their unique skills and abilities.
Our radiation oncologist directs the team physicist and technologists who determine the most effective treatment plans possible for patients who will benefit from radiation therapy. Medical oncologists are physicians who design the treatment plans for patients who require chemotherapy. Assisted by a staff of nurses and technologists, the medical oncologists direct treatment plans uniquely suited to each individual patient.
Since effective treatment of cancer requires sophisticated diagnostic information, our team also includes hospital laboratory specialists who support the Cancer Center. Dietitians and exercise specialists play an important role in treatment. Proper diet and regular exercise regimes are designed for each patient to improve overall health and to increase stamina during therapy.
The centerpiece of the Cancer Center's radiation oncology unit is a Varian 2300 EX linear accelerator. The linear accelerator allows the radiation oncologist to precisely calculate the correct dosage of radiation needed to destroy cancer while minimizing damage to healthy organs and/or tissue around the cancer site. With this state-of-the art equipment, treatment time for the radiation oncology patients is reduced. The radiation oncology department is located on the lower level of the Cancer Center. The director is Radiation Oncologist Dr. Maurice Krause. His office number is 918/331-1857. Toll Free 1-866-331-1703.
