What is Radiation Oncology?
Radiation therapy uses carefully targeted and regulated doses of high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. Radiation causes some cancer cells to die immediately after treatment, but most die or become incapacitated as a result of the radiation-induced damage to the cancer cell’s chromosomes and DNA.
Memorial Healthcare partners with McLaren Karmanos Cancer Institute to provide radiation services to our patients in Owosso.
If you’ve received a diagnosis of cancer our medical oncologists will work with you step-by-step to determine if radiation oncology is right for you.
