The Department of Radiation Oncology offers a variety of cutting-edge radiation oncology treatment options, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). Houston Methodist was the first in the nation to provide IMRT, which delivers a high dose of radiation while restricting exposure to surrounding healthy tissues. Patients receiving IMRT experience fewer side effects and experience a quicker recovery. We continue to develop advanced treatments and technologies to better screen, diagnose and treat cancers in order to reduce complications and improve survival rates.


Collaboration within Houston Methodist Cancer Center and with other institutions results in scientific research that is translated to our outstanding clinical care. In addition, our standard of care is routinely assessed and updated to ensure we continue to offer the most effective services for our patients.
