Our State-of-the-Art Cancer Care Facilities and Services
As part of NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute–designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer the most advanced radiation therapy equipment in Brooklyn. This includes the latest linear accelerator, used for external beam radiation therapy, a treatment that directs radiation at the tumor from outside the body. Our experts also plan radiation therapy treatments by using a CT simulator, which allows us to precisely locate the tumor and spare normal tissue.
The types of radiation therapy delivered by our team of specialized radiation therapists include stereotactic radiotherapy, a highly effective treatment for many types of cancer in which targeted radiation beams are delivered to the tumor in a short amount of time. We also have world-class physicists and dosimetrists as part of the radiation oncology team who help customize the safest and most effective treatment plan for each person.
We provide a variety of additional services that ensure your visits to Perlmutter Cancer Center—Sunset Park are as efficient and comfortable as possible.
