Radiation Therapy Services
Radiotherapy is an integral part of a multidisciplinary cancer treatment program. Radiation therapy can be given alone as a cure. Radiation therapy services can also be combined with surgery or chemotherapy to enhance treatment.
The Nicklaus Children's Hospital Cancer Center offers radiation treatment for cancer through the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center/ Jackson Memorial Hospital. The program is equipped with the only MRI-guided radiation delivery system in the east coast, five modern linear accelerators, a Gamma Knife, CT simulation, and a high-dose rate brachytherapy unit to provide radiation treatment for children with cancer.
Our radiation therapy services are conducted by board certified radiation oncologists, medical physicists, board-certified radiation therapists, medical dosimetrists and other highly trained support staff.
At a young age, Bi’Yanie was diagnosed with sickle cell, a blood disorder that causes the cells to take on a crescent or sickle shape and can lead to very painful episodes called crises. Today, Bi’Yanie is getting stronger by the day, thanks to the bone marrow transplant she received at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.
