Dallas, TX, June 14, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Approximately 900 patients have been known to make the arduous trek from Dallas to Tulsa for a specialized cancer treatment that they can now get much closer to home.
The TomoTherapy® H™ Series is a premier and sought after technology, well-known for its ability to deliver targeted radiation treatment only where it is needed, and attacking cancer cells with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This newest series has been unavailable in the Dallas area until now at Premier Cancer Centers Dallas.
Jeff Guest, President and CEO of Premier Cancer Centers of Dallas parent company SRS Holdings, states, “From the beginning we have been determined to make a dramatic difference in the lives of cancer patients and create a cancer treatment experience unlike any in North Texas. We are combining the most current treatment technology with specialized patient navigation and a signature culture of compassion so that patients can concentrate on getting well and not on solving logistical problems. We want patients to experience best outcomes while conserving their energy, saving time, travel expenses and frustration getting to and from their therapy sessions. To complete our suite of treatment services and in addition to the latest advancements in TomoTherapy®, we also have The CyberKnife M6 FIM System, an accurate and well-proven answer for full-body robotic radiosurgery.”
To further enhance the patient’s visit, the staff has been professionally trained in the application of compassionate care techniques and other interpersonal communication skills dealing with the emotional impact of cancer on both patients and family. Tina Withrow, an experienced cancer patient navigator explains, “Our patients are dealing with difficult issues and pressures on many levels. The center has orchestrated a culture of care which delivers the latest in customized treatment options while recognizing that cancer is a complicated puzzle and should embrace solutions that go beyond radiation or surgery. Sometimes even the smallest details matter, like being able to park for free right by the front door!”
Guest added, “We are committed to the cancer patients of North Texas and to providing them the latest advancements in TomoTherapy®. Why should patients who live in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Grayson and surrounding counties have to drive out of the state for this treatment? We made the commitment and investment to change that situation. The TomoTherapy H Series combines the most advanced form of intensity modulated radiation (IMRT) with the accuracy of CT scanning, all in one machine. This approach treats hard to reach tumors that sit close to healthy tissues and organs; thereby reducing radiation exposure to healthy tissues surrounding your tumor. During treatment our physicians can fine-tune the intensity and direction of the beams in real time. This innovative approach treats tumors one layer at a time known as slice therapy. No other technology offers this seamless integration of image-guided and intensity-modulated radiation therapy.”
