Treatment Procedures


Houston Methodist Hospital delivers the highest quality patient-centered care for our patients with cancer and benign conditions. The Department of Radiation Oncology offers the most effective leading-edge radiation oncology treatment options in a compassionate and spiritual environment. Our treatment options include external beam radiation and brachytherapy.

Houston Methodist was the first in the nation to provide Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). IMRT delivers a high dose of radiation while restricting exposure to surrounding healthy tissues. Patients receiving IMRT experience fewer side effects and quicker recovery. Breakthrough technology such as IMRT requires the type of specialty training offered at Houston Methodist Hospital.

Collaboration within the Department of Radiation Oncology and with other institutions results in scientific research that is translated to clinical care. Our standard of care is routinely assessed and updated so that the most effective services are implemented at Houston Methodist Hospital. Because Houston Methodist Hospital is leader in the field of radiation oncology, we deliver the best outcomes to our patients.
