Medical Oncology

Oncology is the diagnosis and treatment of patients with cancer. Medical oncology involves the use of medications, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormones and analgesics, for the management and treatment of the disease. At Bothwell, we are early adopters of medical treatments to effectively and aggressively fight cancer.

Bothwell’s medical oncologist specialists offer patients the same treatment available in larger cities but right here close to home. Bothwell has a dedicated oncology pharmacy located within the Cancer Center for greater efficiency and patient safety. For more information on our medical oncology services, e-mail or call (660) 829-7792.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy is used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. About half of all people with cancer are treated with radiation therapy. Radiation therapy may be used alone or in combination with other cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or surgery. Bothwell Regional Health Center uses some of the most advanced medical technology available to treat patients by focusing on the affected area only. In some cases, a patient may receive more than one type of radiation therapy.
