Radiation Oncology

Making you as comfortable as possible during your treatment, and helping you resume your normal life and activities as quickly as possible, is our number one goal.

Our team is led by radiation oncologists who provide you with coordinated care by working closely with your referring physician. Your proposed treatment plans, as well as the results achieved during and after your treatment, are always shared with the physicians involved with your cancer care.

Our Facility
Our Radiation Oncology Associates facility serves the entire CarePoint system including Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center.

It is located on the ground floor of Bayonne Medical Center, with a private entrance on East 29th Street in the Lorraine M. LaPilusa Pavilion. Parking permits are available for our patients so that they can park in front of the facility.

Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) 

Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) is a minimally invasive procedure that selectively infuses tiny glass or resin beads loaded with the radioactive particle, Yttrium-90 (Y-90), to kill a cancer within the liver.  Y-90 loaded beads are infused into blood vessels feeding the cancer within the liver, delivering a high dose of lethal radiation to the cancer while sparing normal tissue.  SIRT can lengthen survival and improve quality of life for patients who are not eligible for surgery.

CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical Center started a SIRT program in 2018, where a panel of specialists reach a uniform consensus that SIRT with Y-90 particles is an appropriate option for patients with a cancer in the liver.  SIRT can be used to treat primary liver cancer (hepatoma, hepatocellular cancer, HCC), metastatic colorectal cancer to the liver, neuroendocrine tumors in the liver, and other metastatic cancers to the liver.  CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical center is the only facility in Hudson County offering this advanced treatment.
