Patients at Flushing Radiation Oncology not only get the highest standard of treatment from human staff members, but from the robotic ones too.

Flushing Radiation Oncology Services is the newest radiation treatment center committed to providing clinical excellence and compassionate patient care with the latest innovations. They are the first center in the city to offer Cyberknife Robotic Radiosurgery technology.

Cyberknife is doctors’ newest weapon against the scourge of cancer. Far more accurate and focused than previous treatments, Cyberknife can pinpoint and follow cancer throughout the body. This enables a more effective treatment with fewer side effects.

They treat all forms of cancer at Flushing Radiation Oncology Services, including prostate, head and neck, lung, breast, brain, rectum, skin, bladder, gynecologic tumors, lymphoma and spinal tumors. Candidates for treatment include those with early detected types of cancer, as well as those whose cancer has spread.

Doctors Vincent Yeung and Alan Katz, with 60 years of experience between them, specialize in all types of cancer. Dr. Katz specifically has recorded treatment of the largest series of Cyberknife prostate patients in the world – with excellent control and low morbidity.

Cyberknife can also be used to boost the effectiveness of regular cancer treatments. Both treatments can be used in tandem to fight the more aggressive forms of the disease.

Thanks to Cyberknife technology, sufferers of all types of cancer are able to maintain their pre-cancer lifestyle. A reduced number of treatments, as well as reduced treatment durations, relieve the overtaxed body and enable the patient to continue to work and live as close to normal as possible.

Flushing’s doctors have no problem handing out their cell phone numbers to their patients. In fact, they believe ardently in providing quicker, more personalized service than others in the industry.

Upon entering treatment, patients are given a complete evaluation to determine the exact course of treatment necessary. After the evaluation, there is no waiting for weeks until treatment; there can be as little as a few days between entering the center to receiving treatment.

Possible candidates should call Flushing Radiation Oncology at 888-880-6646 or visit www.flushingros.com for more information.

The technology to help you heal exists; it is up to you to utilize it.
