The Inova Department of Advanced Radiation Oncology and Proton Therapy offers state-of-the-art radiation oncology for all types of cancers and benign conditions. Our innovation and research in advanced radiation therapy are unparalleled in Northern Virginia, and set us apart from other health systems. We have the top Radiation Oncologists in the nation and each physician is a member of their specialized Tumor Board. Each of our patients' treatment plans is reviewed among the whole radiation oncology physician team on a weekly basis, making sure the best care plan is set.
With a focus on compassionate care, our team of elite board-certified radiation oncologists will work together with your physician to determine whether proton therapy is an option for you. You’ll also receive ongoing emotional and educational support throughout your treatment from our nurse navigators. We are dedicated to providing you the best cancer care.
Your radiation oncologist may recommend using radiation therapy to:
- Eliminate tumors that have not spread to other parts of your body
- Reduce the risk that cancer will return after you undergo surgery or chemotherapy by killing cancer cells that might remain
- Shrink the tumor before surgery
- Treat benign conditions
From diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation, the Inova Schar Cancer Institute brings together the talents of a first-class, multidisciplinary team of physicians and advanced treatment technologies to offer you the full spectrum of cancer care.
