Specialists for Each Type of Cancer

Fox Chase has one of the country’s largest and most dynamic programs in radiation oncology programs. Each of our radiation oncologists is a cancer specialist with expertise in the application of radiation therapy as it is used in the management of cancer and have extensive experience treating patients with state-of-the-art therapies such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). 

They also continue to develop the image-guided radiation therapies of the future. In 2016, Fox Chase doctors will be the first physicians in the United States to use radiodynamic therapy (RDT) in the treatment of cancers. This innovative technology will allow previously treated patients to receive additional treatment safely.
