Through our affiliation with Fox Chase Cancer Center, patients can participate in more than 100 investigational treatment and prevention protocols. These studies include Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG); National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP); and Fox Chase Cancer Center in house studies and pharmaceutical protocols.
Nurses who specialize in clinical research work with patients to provide ongoing education and support.

We believe in a holistic approach to well-being—treating the mind, body and spirit. Our Integrative Care offerings are here to add to the overall state of our cancer patients, who often have above average levels of stress, fatigue, anxiety, nausea and pain. We can help manage these issues with supplemental health and stress management services, including:
- Harp Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Reiki Therapy
- 3-D Conformal
- CT/MR/PET Fusion Treatment Planning
- IMRT - Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy
- IGRT- Image Guided Radiation Therapy
- Prostate Seed Implants

(IGRT) technology allows radiation oncologists to better treat tumors and limit exposing healthy tissue to unnecessary radiation. IGRT is a precise form of treatment that utilizes multiple imaging and motion management techniques for more accurate tumor targeting.
Through better targeting of the radiation beam with IGRT, dosage levels can be increased and target volumes (the three-dimensional areas to receive treatment) can be reduced—allowing tumors to get a higher dose of radiation and limiting the exposure to surrounding tissues. This preserves a patient's healthy tissue and organs.
CyberKnife: The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is a painless, noninvasive, outpatient cancer treatment with minimal to no side effects. CyberKnife is able to deliver very high doses of radiation to cancerous and noncancerous tumors with extreme accuracy. The System allows physicians to zero in on the target tumor and irradiate it without harming the surrounding healthy tissue. As a result, the CyberKnife treatment is more comfortable for patients, radiation is delivered more accurately, and treatments can be completed in one to five sessions.
