Medical Oncology

Medical oncology involves the diagnosing and treating of cancer systemically by using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy. Medical oncologists often practice hematology as well, which is a specialty involving disorders of the blood. Therefore, not everyone treated in medical oncology has cancer.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncology is a specialty which uses radiation therapy via high energy beams to kill cancer cells. Your radiation oncologist is a specialist in this field. Most radiation treatments treat the local area of cancer involvement rather than the whole body.

Surgical Oncology

We work with the surgeons at Watauga Surgical Group, as well as surgeons outside of our community to provide surgical care.  Depending on the situation, surgery may or may not be an option to remove cancer from the body directly. You may also be referred to medical oncology or radiation oncology to develop your individual cancer care plan before or after surgery.
