Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a type of external radiation therapy that OHC doctors use to position a patient and precisely deliver radiation to tumors in the body (except the brain). The total dose of radiation is divided into higher doses and administered over fewer days. This type of radiation therapy helps spare normal tissue.
SBRT has become an increasingly common option for patients:
- Who have smaller tumors
- Whose disease is not surgically accessible
- Whose disease is too advanced for surgery
- Who cannot tolerate anesthesia
If you’d like to speak with someone about SBRT as a treatment option, please call OHC at 1-800-710-4674 and we’d be happy to schedule an appointment for you to speak with one of our radiation therapy experts.
