EXPERIENCE MATTERS IN CANCER TREATMENT

Dayton’s Most Experienced Radiation Oncology Experts.

Dr. Ed Hughes recently celebrated the 15th Anniversary of opening his freestanding radiation oncology center, First Dayton Cancer Care. Dr. Hughes’ experience does make a huge difference in the lives of his patients. With over 35 years of perfecting his craft, he still believes in seeing the patient as an individual who deserves the best medical care available. This is why he remains independent of any of the hospital systems. He believes that a excellent patient care is about people providing this care and their knowledge and experience enhances his work as a physician. First Dayton’s team of experts is beating the odds for our prostate cancer patients.

For our prostate cancer patients, a 98.8% PSA control rate at 5 years and no grade 3 complications-better than the National CyberKnife Registry.  At First Dayton CyberKnife, prostate cancer is treated in 5 visits, with no incision and no pain.  There is little chance of embarrassing side effects like incontinence. 

We achieve such spectacular results?  CyberKnife is the only radiosurgery instrument that continuously tracts tumor and organ movement during treatment-sparing more normal organs. 

With CyberKnife for prostate cancer, I can mimic temporary prostate implants-but without the uncomfortable, invasive procedures.  With CyberKnife, I can deliver higher doses of radiation to those regions of the prostate containing cancer while sparing the urethra. Despite what ordinary cancer centers may claim,  no other device can do the same.  And it goes without saying that those ordinary cancer centers do not tackle prostate cancer patients with their stereotactic machines. 

Ordinary cancer centers talk about speed, but First Dayton CyberKnife provides real results with exquisite precision.  And it is all done in an outpatient setting, with no pain and no incisions.  Our patient can get off the CyberKnife treatment table and resume their normal activities immediately.

Experience matters. And we have the most experienced team in Dayton.
