The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute offers a comprehensive array of treatment modalities. This location is conveniently located in Cumming off GA-400 in the medical office building on the Northside Hospital Forsyth campus.
The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute diagnoses and treats more cases of cancer than any other hospital in Georgia. Nearly two-thirds of all cancer patients receive radiation therapy at some point during treatment. Northside offers multiple radiation oncology locations throughout Metro Atlanta, providing patients the convenience of treatment close to home or work.
Radiation therapy uses high energy X-rays to destroy cancer cells and prevent cancer from returning. Radiation oncology, also referred to as radiation therapy, uses ionizing radiation in the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous or benign tumors. For best treatment results, radiation therapy treatment may be used alone or combined with other modalities, such as chemotherapy or surgery. The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute Radiation Oncology teams consist of physicists, dosimetrists, radiation therapists, nurses and administrative staff working alongside our board-certified radiation oncologists.
