Compassionate, collaborative care tailored to your needs.
In cancer care, radiation therapy is just one of the treatment types that may be needed to help you have more time, live your highest-quality life, and beat your cancer. That’s why we work closely—and seamlessly—with all the other specialists and providers involved in your care. Everything we do is with your best care, health and treatment outcomes in mind, including interacting with your oncologist, surgeon and other doctors to tailor your treatment to you.
In addition to personalized treatment, we provide you with the patient-first, you-centered caring, attention and service you need and deserve. You’ll be cared for in an environment that is welcoming, professional, compassionate and supportive. We’ll answer your questions, explain your care and options in detail, and cater to your needs and comfort. You’ll also have access to the full range of support services. And with our flagship radiation oncology center in Monroe Township, four satellite locations in New Jersey and one in Pennsylvania, you have convenient access to one of the most trusted radiation treatment providers in the region.
Faster, shorter and easier treatments with Princeton Precision.
Because we’re dedicated to remaining at the forefront of our field, your therapy very likely could require shorter, fewer and less burdensome treatments. Princeton Precision means that we can, for many people, achieve an extreme level of precision that has a direct, positive impact on your care.
Princeton Precision isn’t any one thing but, rather, a group of methods that allow us to exactingly deliver radiation to its target and reduce exposure to healthy surrounding tissues. We’re able to achieve this with image guidance, highly precise treatment planning, unsurpassed targeting accuracy, highly conformal radiation delivery systems, and advanced methods that allow direct application of radiation to tissue on a repeated temporary basis.
Princeton Precision also means we can deliver high-dose radiation to the target, often from many different angles. This and the other methods of achieving extreme precision allow us to treat your tumor effectively while also reducing the duration and number of treatment sessions…and the potential for side effects and complications.
