The Reddy Cancer Treatment Center offers state-of-the-art treatment services; the Center offers medical and radiation oncology treatment options, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) in the fight against cancer.
IMRT is an advanced computer programming system that delivers precise radiation doses to a malignant tumor. IMRT allows for the radiation dose to conform more precisely to the three-dimensional shape of the tumor by controlling the intensity of the radiation beam in multiple small volumes. Because the ratio of healthy tissue dose to tumor dose is reduced to a minimum with the IMRT approach, higher and more effective radiation doses can safely be delivered to tumors with fewer side-effects compared with conventional radiotherapy techniques.
The Center has a dedicated and compassionate staff of the highest caliber. The team is led by Dr. Anthony Vaccaro, Medical Director and Radiation Oncologist at the Reddy Cancer Treatment Center. In his position with the Reddy Cancer Treatment Center, Dr. Vaccaro is the leader in cancer care for Franklin County residents. In addition, he leads the team at the Reddy Center and guides the direction of oncology at Alice Hyde Medical Center.
The Center is also staffed by a Director, a well experienced and trained radiation therapy staff, a superb ancillary staff dedicated to patient care, and a full time Medical Physicist with many years experience.
The Center, as a service of Alice Hyde Medical Center, is also accredited by the Joint Commission.
