Every day, Wellstar is providing new advancements in cancer care—and renewed hope to patients. Across Georgia, Wellstar experts treat cancer with confidence, using cutting-edge treatments like intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT). During this revolutionary breast cancer procedure, a surgeon and radiation oncologist work as a team side-by-side in the operating room. One specialist removes the tumor as the other delivers a single dose of radiation during surgery. Instead of months of follow-up radiation appointments, IORT patients finish their treatment in just minutes. That means getting back to life faster. Wellstar is more than healthcare. It’s PeopleCare.
