TidalHealth giving their patients another option for cancer treatment

SEAFORD, Del.- New technology has arrived at a local hospital that will make cancer treatments less painful and less time consuming.

At TidalHealth’s Nanticoke Allen Cancer Center, they have the Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy. The treatment is painless and non-invasive, using focused beams of radiation to destroy tumors. We’re told this new piece of technology allows patients to finish treatment in a shorter amount of time. Another plus is patients now don’t have to travel far to get this treatment.

“So, we have this technology in Salisbury, we have this down in Ocean Pines, but we hadn’t had this in Delaware, for Seaford and the surrounding Delaware community there,” Dr. John Mansueti, the Medical Director of TidalHealth’s Nanticoke Allen Cancer Center, said. “So, it’s really really nice that we are able to provide this excellent option for our patients locally, so they don’t have to travel anywhere to get this treatment.”

This treatment could benefit patients who have early stages of lung cancer, for patients who don’t want surgery, or are not healthy enough for surgery.
