Bluffton/Hilton Head Radiation Oncology Center

The Radiation Oncology Center at the Nancy N. and J.C. Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion offers two secondary locations to treat patients in the Bluffton and Hilton Head areas. We are excited to now offer full treatment planning at the SJ/C Bluffton Campus. This means initial planning, consultations and subsequent appointments are all available in the Low Country without having to make the trip to Savannah. 

Our radiation facilities provide the latest advances in radiation therapy and compassionate care, closer to home.

The Bluffton and Hilton Head Radiation Oncology Centers house some advanced radiation technologies, including:

  • The TrueBeamAn advancement on traditional radiation, this system is more accurate and creates shorter treatment schedules.
  • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT): IGRT helps to verify the accuracy of radiation treatment with the use of daily imaging before treatment begins. Complemented by sophisticated treatment planning software and pre-treatment imaging studies, this technology is particularly accurate in delivering localized radiation because it allows for breathing and daily internal organ changes.
