About Us

woman
When fighting left-breast cancer, who's looking out for your heart?
WE ARE.

Radiation is highly effective in fighting breast cancer. But when cancer is in the left breast, studies show that the proximity of your heart makes radiation-induced heart disease a serious risk.

To help make sure your heart is as far from the radiation as possible, the Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Port Huron uses AlignRT which monitors thousands of points on your skin to ensure you are in the correct position. If you move during treatment, the radiation is automatically stopped until you are back in position.

Cancer Treatment Technology and Services

The Karmanos Cancer Institute at McLaren Port Huron offers comprehensive oncology services including infusion therapy and state-of-the-art, leading edge linear accelerator that delivers the most effective radiation therapy is available. Clinical trials, cutting-edge therapies with potential benefits over standard treatments, are now offered locally. The facility opened in July 2016.

Expanded services means greater access to cancer care in St. Clair and Sanilac counties.
