A relatively new technique could make breast cancer patients post-surgery lives much easier. Intraoperative radiation therapy, or IORT, is a new form of radiation therapy that replaces weeks of traditional radiation therapy. It’s administered in a single dose directly at the tumor site – and given at the same time as the surgery. For most patients, they will not require the normal daily radiation treatments that normally require six to seven weeks. It allows a woman to get her radiation and her surgery in one day. In this segment, Dr. Veronica Jones shares the latest advances in treatment for breast cancer with our clinical trials of intraoperative radiation therapy and cryoablation, and by having world-renowned scientists, physicians and treatment manufacturing facilities working side by side at our main campus, we’re able to quickly turn breakthrough discoveries into experimental treatments.
