Treatment Procedures

Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital's Cancer Center offers both external radiation and brachytherapy (internal radiation) for the treatment of cancer and a myriad of benign conditions.

Houston Methodist Hospital was the first facility in the nation to provide Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), which has become a prevalent treatment form because of its safer and more precise delivery of radiation. Today, Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital continues that tradition, providing our patients leading-edge medicine including the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options.

By working closely with Houston Methodist Hospital and with associated research institutions, Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is able to provide the latest, most successful treatments to patients. Our standard of care is routinely assessed and updated so that the most effective treatment procedures are always available at our center.

Radiation therapy may be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or biological therapy. As part of your personalized treatment plan, your cancer care team will work with you and your doctor to determine which procedure or procedures are right for you.

Patients at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital's Cancer Center also have access to a number of additional state-of-the-art therapies through the Department of Radiation Oncology at Houston Methodist Hospital. Some of these include:
