The CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is comprised of four teams:
Radiation Oncology and Diagnostic Imaging: Radiation treatment has proven to be a vital tool for improving the health of a number of cancer patients. This critical aspect of care at the CVS Angel Care Cancer Center is quite unique because it is performed in our own state of the art facilities in Carlsbad, California and in cooperation with regional human radiation oncologists and radiation therapy centers. We are the ONLY center in the world that provides "high tech and high touch" linear accelerator generated radiation therapy with both photon and electron beam radiation, Trilogy based stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and the robotically controlled, computer controlled, Cyberknife stereotactic radiosurgery. Similarly, CVS stands ready to diagnose each problem with access to state-of-the-art diagnostics, including computerized tomography, PET/CT, MRI, ultrasound, color flow doppler, and digital radiology.
Surgical Oncology: Cancer is the most curable of all chronic diseases and surgery is critical in helping to achieve that cure. The best chance for cure is with initial surgery. Therefore, having specially trained surgeons is vital. CVS features an experienced team of highly trained board certified surgeons and surgical nurses who provide kind, compassionate care for each and every surgery patient. The team approach is used to employ the most effective method for curing or controlling cancer: surgery. Indeed, using an integrated approach, we employ the very latest surgical procedures in concert with radiation and medical surgical procedures.
Emergency and Critical Care: Cancer patients need to have someone standing by day or night, rain or shine, in case the unexpected happens. Fortunately, CVS has a team of the most highly trained specialists in emergency and critical care in the world. If the unexpected happens, we are here for you.
