Radiation Oncology Clinic

UCSF's Radiation Oncology Clinic provides treatments to shrink or eliminate tumor cells without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. The goal is to use high-dose X-ray beams to remove the cancer, keep it from spreading or improve patients' quality of life by relieving pain and other symptoms.

Our service is world renowned for offering the best possible treatment planning and care to patients while working to develop new and better treatment options for future patients.
