New treatment techniques reopening at San Juan Regional Cancer Center

The Farmington-San Juan Regional Medical Center has expanded its library of services and technologies, reopening a cancer center with advanced treatment capabilities and a robotic surgery system.

The cancer center now offers a level of service previously unavailable in the region, and the surgical system could help general surgery and urology patients recover faster because it is less invasive than standard surgery, administrators said.

The hospital said in a recent press release that the San Juan Regional Cancer Center has reopened “with new and advanced technologies to treat the smallest cancers we could not previously treat at home.”

“The $5 million investment includes a CT scanner and linac working in tandem,” spokeswoman Laura Werbner said in a press release.
