Mountainside Medical Center's Department of Radiation Oncology brings advanced radiation technology to the northern New Jersey community. We deliver powerful doses of radiation with precision and excellence- exactly to where it is needed.
Our Radiation Team works in an interdisciplinary manner to deliver the highest levels of accuracy and safety, from treatment planning to delivery. Our highly trained medical team includes physicians, physicists, dosimetrists, nurses, and radiation therapists.
We’re upholding our commitment to providing convenient local access to world-class treatment on par with the nation’s largest cancer centers by employing high precision TrueBeam® image-guided radiotherapy technology.
While standard radiation therapy requires daily treatments for six weeks or more, this breakthrough allows our experienced clinicians to expertly administer intensive doses of radiation and treat some types of cancer more swiftly.
Truebeam® incorporates submillimeter accuracy and On-Board Imaging that allows tumor positioning and tracking during stereotactic treatments. That superior level of precision translates into fewer, shorter radiation sessions and reduced risk of any damage to healthy tissue.
This state-of-the-art stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) treatment is just one component of Hackensack Meridian Health Mountainside Medical Center’s multifaceted, multidisciplinary cancer care program. At our community-based center, every case is carefully reviewed by a distinguished team of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists who collaboratively devise the most effective care plan for each patient.
