Clinical evaluation and radiation therapy for St. Louis cancer patients

As part of an academic medical practice, SLUCare Radiation Oncology offers a range of proven treatments for fighting cancer and benign tumors in both adults and children.

Our radiation oncologists work closely with SLUCare surgeons, medical oncologists and other specialists, including the pediatric team with the nationally ranked Bob Costas Cancer Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Together, we offer customized treatment plans for patients with benign and malignant tumors, as well as rare or complex cancers.

SLUCare radiation oncologists were among the first in the area to offer precision radiotherapy — a noninvasive cancer treatment that uses image-guided robotics to target tumors and lesions with high-level accuracy. This advanced technique minimizes radiation dosage to normal tissue, reduces the number of visits needed for treatment and leads to better outcomes for patients.

  • Clinical evaluation
  • Hypofractionated therapies
  • Radiation therapy
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery
  • Stereotactic ablative body radiation

Opening February 2017: New center will expand treatment options

Our team has provided radiation treatment for cancer patients on the Saint Louis University Medical Center campus since 1968. Now, we're preparing to take a big step forward in cancer care with the development of a new Center for Radiation Medicine — currently under construction alongside SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital. The center will feature the very latest technologies for treating cancer, including high-dose brachytherapy and the Varian TrueBeam Radiotherapy System.
