Surgical oncology (cancer surgery)
Surgery is an effective treatment for many types of cancer. Surgery to remove a tumor (cancerous tissue) may be the first treatment your doctor recommends. Our surgical team has performed thousands of cancer surgeries using traditional (open) and minimally invasive techniques. We will recommend a surgical approach that fits your needs.
Minimally invasive surgery may be laparoscopic (a surgeon uses sophisticated instruments and tiny incisions) or robotic (a robot guides a surgeon's movements). Minimally invasive cancer surgery offers multiple potential benefits, including less pain after surgery and a faster recovery.

Chemotherapy treatments are medications that target and destroy cancer cells. As a systemic treatment, chemotherapy can affect both cancerous and healthy tissues throughout your body. Chemotherapy comes in different forms, such as pills, injections and infusions (through an IV). Our care team will recommend systemic therapies that are best suited for your circumstances which can also include hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, and targeted drugs.

Radiation treatments for cancer
Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation such as X-rays to damage the DNA of cancer cells. Radiation stops cancer cells from growing and dividing. We use radiation therapy to treat many types of cancer. At UnityPoint Health – Trinity, you have access to advanced radiation therapies, including treatments not widely available in this area.
Trinity Cancer Center was the first hospital within 90 miles of Quad Cities to offer TrueBeam® radiotherapy technology. This treatment offers pinpoint accuracy for maximum treatment benefit. Most treatments last only a few minutes, providing you added flexibility.
For brachytherapy, your doctor carefully places radioactive seeds directly into or next to a cancerous tumor. This approach destroys cancer cells while damaging less healthy tissue, offering the potential for fewer side effects.
