The Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute at LifeBridge Health diagnoses and treats all forms of cancer. The most common cancer sites seen at Northwest Hospital include prostate, breast, colon, lung and skin. The hospital is noted for treatment options that include:
Prostate Brachytherapy, or radioactive seed implantation: This procedure delivers a high dosage of radiation to a tumor site without damaging adjacent major organs.
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy: Performed in The Herman and Walter Samuelson Breast Care Center, mammotome stereotactic breast biopsy represents a significant advancement in detecting breast cancer earlier and reducing the number of invasive procedures for women with malignancies.
- Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): This procedure is minimally invasive therapy and uses CT scanning and a special electrode to heat tumor tissue.
