Advanced approaches to treat cancer exist here in the region

The Rush-Riverside Cancer Institute’s affiliation with Rush University Medical Center brings world-class, cutting-edge cancer treatment to the region. Rush-Riverside’s latest technology, equipment, cancer expertise and holistic approach have created a local powerhouse for cancer care.

The Rush-Riverside Cancer Institute provides access to the latest technology, so patients have more powerful ways to fight cancer while remaining close to home and family. Individual treatment plans are created by a dedicated team of cancer experts who collaborate with each other and colleagues from Rush University Medical Center and other major cancer centers. Advanced treatments include minimally invasive procedures to highly-evolved radiation therapy and robotic-assisted surgery, along with access to the latest medications and clinical research trials.

Leading-edge technology for radiation therapy includes the state-of-the-art linear accelerator, the Varian 21 EX. Used in combination with Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, this powerful tool can deliver radiation beams to the cancer with pinpoint accuracy, while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue. But our progressive philosophy means more than just advanced ways to treat cancer—it’s caring for patients how they should be treated, with respect and individualized plans.
