The center treats both adult and pediatric cancer patients. We recognize the special needs of the children in our care are dedicated to ensuring the highest quality health care for them and for all patients.
Located adjacent to the UAMS Outpatient Center, our cancer clinics, infusion clinics, medical center and other complementary patient services are conveniently located just moments from the center.
UAMS radiation oncologists work collaboratively to provide state-of-the-art treatment options, including TomoTherapy, intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and Hyperthermia Therapy, which involves heating the tumor.
