Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy is available right here at Dayton Physicians Network
According to a new study published in the June 2015 Lancet Oncology Journal, patients treated with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), also known as stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) achieve better overall survival than surgery for early lung cancer. Findings from this study show that SBRT is at least equally effective to the current standard of care–invasive surgery.
Recently, Fox News highlighted a Texas patient’s positive experience with this type of radiation therapy instead of surgery for her early stage lung cancer. While this lung cancer patient had to travel long distances to receive treatment in Texas…you don’t have to. This advanced technology is available right here, close to home at Dayton Physicians Network. Our radiation oncologists are highly experienced at treating patients with this live-saving technology and pioneered the technology in 2008. With more than 1,000 patients treated, our results have truly been impressive. Our new advanced True Beam STX technology allows patients to receive this therapy with even greater precision and in a more comfortable setting than competing older technologies.
We would be happy to discuss this technology with you. Please call us at (937) 771-2474 to set up an appointment.
What is SBRT
Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is highly focused radiation treatment that gives an intense dose of radiation concentrated on a tumor, while limiting the dose to the surrounding organs. This is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in just a few minutes. Side effects often are very mild and patients can usually return to full function the same day. This type of therapy usually requires only one to five sessions of therapy. SBRT has become a treatment of choice for many patients with limited volume tumors but for whom surgery may not be an optimal treatment. While SBRT is typically used to treat small, early stage tumors or isolated metastases, it can be used to treat many different types of cancer including; lung, brain, adrenal glands, spine and liver cancers.

This website was created by the American Society for Radiation Oncology, an internationally recognized radiation therapy organization.
SBRT is not for everyone. Talk to your doctor about your type of cancer, your overall health and your options for treatment. Your radiation oncologist will help you decide if SBRT is right for you.
