Who We Are
Thank you for considering the University of Chicago Medicine for your treatment. Our Department is comprised of a team of physicians, physicists, researchers, radiation therapists, dosimetrists, nurses and administrators all committed to bringing the highest quality care to all of our patients. Furthermore, our physicians and medical physicists are pioneers in prescribing the right type of radiation therapy and the optimal position for receiving therapy to deliver precise treatments that target tumors while sparing healthy tissue. We're often among the first in the nation to offer leading-edge technology and treatment approaches -- years before these options become the standard of care elsewhere. If you don't find the information you need, please feel free to contact us.
What We Offer
Our facilities offer a variety of treatments that can be personally tailored to your condition. Our medical staff is expertly trained in cutting-edge treatments, including high-dose rate (HDR) and low-dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy (including eye plaques), conventional external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), linac-based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) with 3D surface imaging for Deep-Inspiration Breath-Hold (DIBH) where appropriate, volumetric arc therapy (VMAT), and prostate seed implants. See our Innovation page for more information regarding specific treatments for various disease sites, including Oligometastases, Pediatric Cancer, Head and Neck Cancer, Breast and Gynecologic Malignancies, Genitourinary Malignancies (such as Prostate Cancer), and Thoracic and Upper GI Malignancies.
The department's primary clinical location is in the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine on the University of Chicago Medicine campus. The two-floor clinic includes patient and family waiting areas, treatment rooms and physician planning spaces. We also have several satellite locations as part of our University of Chicago Comprehensive Cancer Center network, including University of Illinois-Chicago Hospital (UIC), Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, Little Company of Mary in Evergreen Park, and our newest location in Orland Park.
