  • Teamwork. A team of Mayo Clinic experts meets to devise the best treatment plan for you. When considering IORT, your treatment may include medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons, as well as any other specialists as needed.
  • Experience. Mayo Clinic experts have experience using IORT to treat many types of cancer, including soft tissue sarcomas and cancers of the anus, bladder, cervix, colon, kidneys, ovaries, pancreas, prostate, rectum, stomach and uterus. Radiation oncologists at Mayo Clinic consider IORT to be ideal for treating cancers that are likely to recur in the same area after surgery alone. Also, IORT is helpful for cancers located near sensitive organs.
  • Latest technology. Mayo Clinic in Arizona uses a mobile radiation therapy device to deliver IORT in the operating room. This saves time, since patients don't need to be transported to a radiation machine in another part of the hospital.
  • Comprehensive cancer center. Mayo Clinic Cancer Center meets strict standards for a National Cancer Institute comprehensive cancer center, which recognizes scientific excellence and a multispecialty approach focused on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., are ranked among the Best Hospitals for cancer by U.S. News & World Report. Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., is ranked high performing for cancer by U.S. News & World Report.
