- [Dr. Locken] Here at the Ray and Kay Eckstein
Cancer Center at Baptist Health Paducah,
we have a very comprehensive range of oncology
services, really, much more sophisticated than you
would expect for a community of our size.
The oncology world has national standards for each type
of malignancy, whether it's breast cancer,
prostate cancer, lung cancer.
And as an accredited center,
we follow those guidelines so people can feel that
they're getting the national standard of care but do it
in their community surrounded by their family
and loved ones.
- [Robert] At our center,
we offer very advanced techniques,
one of them is stereotactic radiotherapy.
We're able to target the tumor very accurately down to
about a centimeter in size which is quite small,
while at the same time we can miss, spare the
surrounding healthy tissue to a large degree.
So, this is a tremendously powerful treatment technique
that we're able to offer our patients.
- The whole process of going through the treatment for
malignancy is very devastating to a person,
and not just the patient but the entire
family is affected.
So, if a person lives in Paducah or lives in one of the
nearby communities, they don't have to relocate and be
away from their friends and family and support group.
So, patients are able to stay at home,
stay in their daily routine as much as possible,
and to enjoy their life with as
much normalcy to it as possible.
We're very blessed to have the facilities that we have
here at Ray and Kay Eckstein Cancer Center.
