Premier Health offers advanced cancer fighting tools and technologies, including chemotherapy, radiation treatments, surgical interventions, and clinical trials, all close to home where you need them most. From brain surgery to Yttrium-90 radioembolization, we have the expertise and equipment needed to provide powerful cancer care for you and your loved ones. 

We can offer you advanced cancer-fighting tools and technologies, including: 

  • TrueBeam® Linear Accelerator, an advanced radiation technology able to deliver powerful cancer treatment with pinpoint accuracy and precision. Premier Health is the first in the Dayton area to have this equipment. 
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery, which uses the linear accelerator to target tumor sites with high-intensity ionizing radiation. It includes an X-ray system to verify a tumor’s position. It also includes a respiratory gating system to monitor and accommodate the tumor's movement. 
  • NanoKnife, which uses electrical currents to destroy cancerous tumors, instead of more typical heat or cold, to avoid damaging healthy nearby tissue. The procedure is a minimally invasive option for inoperable or hard-to-reach tumors, including ones near major blood vessels and other critical parts of the body. 
  • Chemoembolization,delivering a high dose of chemotherapy directly to the liver, while depriving the tumor of its blood supply. Embolization keeps the chemotherapy drug in the tumor by blocking the blood flow to other areas of the body. A higher dose of chemotherapy can be used, because less of the drug circulates to the healthy cells in the body. 
  • Radiofrequency ablation, a focused heat treatment used to treat cancer in patients with liver tumors. It is performed with a probe that can be programmed for very specific temperatures. This can be used on one or several small lesions in the liver. 
  • Cryoablation, which delivers the energy directly into the tumor. It’s similar to radio frequency ablation; however, rather than killing the tumor with heat, cryoablation uses an extremely cold gas to freeze it. 
  • Robotic-assisted surgery, which allows surgeons to offer a minimally invasive option for complex surgical procedures. Benefits from robotic surgery may include shorter hospital stay and recovery time; less pain, scarring, and blood loss; and less risk of infection. 
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy, advanced techniques that allow our physicians to treat patients with high doses of radiation in a shorter number of days. 
  • Total skin electron beam, a technology used to treat Mycosis Fungoides or cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). This highly specialized technology is available at only a few cancer centers in the U.S. We offer multiple methods of administering radiation therapy for skin cancers, including such skin applicators as the Leipzig, Valencia and Freiburg Flap. 
  • Fully integrated image guided platforms, which provide real-time tumor tracking and visualization that allow for adaptive therapy of Y90 Microspheres to treat liver cancers. Premier Health is one of only 120 sites in the U.S. that offer this treatment.
