Cancer Surgery

At our cancer treatment center in Temple, we are proud to feature cancer surgeons on our medical staff who have developed pioneering and innovative surgical approaches, including minimally invasive techniques, as well as procedures that can be performed through the belly button to hide the incision.

While the surgical techniques and approaches are numerous, the goal is to remove cancerous cells and tumors while minimizing side effects and the appearance of scars as much as possible.

Our Temple cancer treatment center also features a highly skilled plastic and reconstructive surgery team to restore appearance if necessary.

Genetic Screening

Many cancers have a genetic component. At our cancer center, we provide familial cancer risk assessments and help formulate plans for cancer prevention, screening and monitoring.

Breast Imaging

At Baylor Scott & White, we have the most advanced diagnostic equipment available to find your breast tumors early, when cure is most likely. As a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, our diagnostic radiologists are nationally recognized for providing expert imaging and detection.

High Risk Breast Clinic

Our cancer treatment center has a special prevention and detection program for women at high risk of developing breast cancer.

Medical Therapy/Chemotherapy

Given the high number of cases our Temple cancer treatment center treats, the medical cancer specialists on our medical staff have vast experience in determining the appropriate course of chemotherapy and other IV-based medication treatments depending on each patient's needs.  

Our infusion center allows patients privacy during treatment or the ability to socialize with other cancer patients receiving infusions at the same time.

Radiation Therapy​

The board-certified radiation specialists on our medical staff have several types of radiation therapy technologies to select the most appropriate treatment option, including technologies that may reduce treatment times from six weeks to as little as five days depending on the cancer. Our team combines extensive experience and research with these advanced tools to precisely target and treat tumors, sparing surrounding healthy tissue and decreasing side effects.

The radiation therapy program available at our cancer treatment center in Temple has system-wide accreditation by the American College of Radiology, which distinguishes us as the hospital-based cancer system in Central Texas to enjoy this designation.

Cancer was tough. Baylor Scott & White was tougher.

For Rebecca Alcozer, finding out she had breast cancer was like a punch to the gut. "It really hit me hard," she said. "But I decided to fight back."

At Baylor, Rebecca had a whole team of specialists in her corner. After surgery and chemotherapy, she's back to her favorite activities. Now with cancer behind her, she feels more empowered than ever. As she says, "When you come through something like breast cancer, you know you're strong."
