Wesley Medical Center 316-962-8400

Wesley Medical Center is the first – and only – hospital in Kansas to offer a new breakthrough treatment option for patients with early-stage breast cancer. The procedure, called intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT), is a one-day breast cancer treatment that offers multiple patient benefits, including added convenience, fewer treatments, and reduced costs. For women meeting selection criteria, IORT allows radiation oncologists and breast cancer surgeons to work together to deliver a full, concentrated dose of radiation in one day at the time of lumpectomy, targeting cancer cells and sparing healthy tissue, such as the heart, lungs, and ribs. Traditional breast cancer treatment typically involves daily radiation treatment five days per week for up to eight weeks.
