Radiation Oncology

The Radiation Oncology Department at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation from the American College of Radiology. With the ACR seal, you can trust that your treatment will be provided with the highest levels of quality and safety.

Radiation therapy is frequently the treatment of choice for many types of cancer. Other times radiation therapy is given in addition to treatments such as chemotherapy. Radiation therapy begins with a treatment planning session, which carefully outlines the area of the body to receive radiation and the amount of radiation necessary. Treatment usually takes several weeks.

Because state-of-the-art radiation therapy and chemotherapy are available in Elkin, patients and their families can avoid the added burden of traveling to other cancer centers miles away.

Gregory Fiets, MD is a board-certified radiation oncologist with the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Department of Radiation Oncology and Medical Director of the Regional Cancer Center at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital (HCMH). He and his team provide care at the center five days a week.

The Regional Cancer Center at HCMH offers patients improved chances for a cure with fewer side effects. This state-of-the-art approach, called intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) uses computer-generated radiation dose calculations. The radiation beam intensity is varied or modulated to allow exact dose delivery. The clinical use of IMRT shows excellent promise for prostate cancer, head and neck cancers, and lung cancer.
