Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy has the ability to reach cancer that may have spread, even microscopically, throughout the body.

  • Laminectomy
    If you are experiencing back pain so severe that it interferes with your quality of life and you and your physician have exhausted other medical treatments that have proven ineffective, you may be a candidate for a laminectomy.

  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Physical Therapy
    The goal of physical therapy is to help you increase your mobility, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent disability, allowing you to move independently through your environment.

  • Radiation Therapy
    If you are concerned with how radiation may affect your health, Jefferson physicians have made great strides in reducing the effects of radiation on normal tissue surrounding the tumor being treated.
