Sikeston Radiation Oncology, a Saint Francis Medical Partners practice (1124 N. Main Street), will unveil a new linear accelerator in February 2016, offering patients the latest technology available to treat cancer in Sikeston.
The new Elekta Synergy® linear accelerator offers a state-of-the-art approach, including 3-D images to guide patient setup before the radiation therapy begins. This feature keeps the patient more comfortable, saves time and ensures the radiation therapy is precise and accurate.
Office space at Sikeston Radiation Oncology is currently being renovated to prepare for the new linear accelerator, with completion expected in February. Until that time, Sikeston Radiation Oncology patients who undergo radiation will receive treatments at Cape Radiation Oncology.
Sikeston Radiation Oncology will remain open and Emily Militzer, MD, radiation oncologist, will continue to provide all other patient services during renovation, including patient consultations and follow-up appointments.
