For decades, Riverside has led our region in combining gifted physicians, dedicated staff and healing care with the latest cancer treatment technologies available. Our cancer care team places a high priority on your overall well-being and our patient navigators are here to help you through every stage of treatment.
To help you during this difficulttime, we've put together information to help reassure you in knowing what to expect during treatment and what you can do to remain as comfortable as possible. The information includes:
- Types of radiation
- Our physicians
- Our radiation treatment centers
- What to expect when you have external beam radiation
- What to expect when you have internal radiation therapy
- Tips for making life easier during treatment
- Support groups
- A glossary of medical terms you may encounter during your therapy
During your first appointment, you will be given a handbook that contains all of this information and you will view a video.
