21st Century Oncology Expands Non-invasive, Advanced Cancer Treatment At Cape Coral Location

Submitted By: Annelise Przywara

21st Century Oncology, a GenesisCare company, has introduced the Halcyon™ system at its Cape Coral location, a new non-invasive cancer treatment system. As the most recent advancement in cancer care from Varian, the system’s leading-edge technology targets tumors with pinpoint accuracy while providing patients with comfort and convenience. Halcyon offers comprehensive cancer treatment for head and neck, breast, lung, prostate, and many more forms of cancer.

Using advanced image-guided volumetric-modulated radiotherapy, Halcyon is an entirely non-invasive (no incisions, no surgery) treatment option with no post-surgery recovery period. The system delivers a precise, tightly focused radiation dose that conforms to the shape of the tumor and minimizes the impact on surrounding healthy tissue. Computer-generated 3D images contribute to its pinpoint accuracy, as well as enable physicians to custom design a patient’s treatment plan.

Additionally, Halcyon offers added comfort for patients as treatment time is reduced by up to 60 percent or more compared to other machines. Since the machine is water-cooled, the climate can be controlled and kept at a comfortable temperature for those undergoing treatment. Further, it’s two times quieter than other machines and provides other comfort features such as a low couch height for easy access, ambient lighting, and a generous opening to help patients feel relaxed.

Constantine Mantz, MD, Chief Policy Officer and Radiation Oncologist at 21st Century Oncology said, “Halcyon bring extraordinary cancer treatment to Southwest Florida. This advanced technology allows for optimal, non-invasive cancer treatment while minimizing the side effects of other therapies.”
