21st Century Oncology, the nation’s premier cancer treatment network and largest radiation therapy provider, announces the reopening of the East Naples Cancer Treatment Facility located at 8625 Collier Boulevard, Naples, Fla. 34114.
Among other advanced treatments, this is the only practice in East Naples offering the state-of-the-art Calypso® 4-Dimensional Treatment Localization System to treat prostate cancer, and one of two 21st Century Oncology locations in the area with the technology. The innovative prostate cancer targeting system works like a GPS for the body®. It precisely adjusts to the patient’s position and movements – optimizing radiation therapy and minimizing side effects.
“After completing the Calypso® system installment, we’re thrilled to reopen the facility and continue to provide the highest level of care to our patients,” says Bruce M. Nakfoor, M.D., Board Certified Radiation Oncologist and Medical Director for 21st Century Oncology in Naples. “This addition provides the advanced modality conveniently and will mean greater access to high quality care for those in Southwest Florida diagnosed with cancer.”
Calypso® is emerging as the quality standard for prostate cancer treatment, offering a highly accurate delivery during which more radiation reaches the tumor, not surrounding healthy tissue. Calypso® 4-Dimensional Localization is also utilized at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, University of Washington Medical Center, Duke University Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, University of Michigan Health System, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University.
