Innovation & Research
CyberKnife Non-Invasive Treatment
CyberKnife is an innovative, non-invasive treatment option for cancer. It provides treatment for tumors that cannot be removed surgically. CyberKnife can treat cancers in any part of the body, such as brain and spine, head and neck, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas and prostate cancers.
Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery Techniques
Minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques allow physicians to carefully remove cancer from areas throughout your body. PIM Network Hospitals offer the least-invasive breast cancer procedures, robotic-assisted surgery, laparoscopic, single-port surgery, video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and transoral laser surgery.
Our team includes surgeons who have pioneered significant breakthroughs that are now considered worldwide standards of care. Our colorectal surgeon performs 90 to 95 percent of colorectal surgeries laparoscopically, resulting in patients who are more likely to retain normal function and avoid colostomy bags. Sphincter preservation with our colorectal specialist is 93 percent vs. the national average of 40 to 60 percent.
Advanced Radiation Therapies
PIM Network Hospitals utilize the latest, most precise radiation therapy procedures to target cancer cells without damaging healthy. Radiation oncologists have developed several new cancer treatments and have helped pioneer the use of advanced radiation therapies.
State-of-the-art therapies intend to help children and adults during their treatment. Through these therapies, a patient’s memory is stimulated and they can express themselves through art with no need for artistic talent.
