PetCure Oncology In Clifton, New Jersey
In the New York City area and northern New Jersey, PetCure Oncology manages a standalone comprehensive cancer care center that provides medical oncology and radiation oncology services in addition to CT, X-Ray and ultrasound. In addition to cancer care and advanced imaging, the Clifton location also features an on-site outpatient internal medicine service.
Originally created as the first veterinary-only, independent, cross-sectional imaging and radiation treatment center in the world, this long-standing cancer care center joined the PetCure Oncology network in 2015. Medical oncology was added in 2021 and internal medicine was added in 2022. Not only has the center treated thousands of patients, it has served as a vital educational resource for veterinarians in the application of cross-sectional imaging, including MRI and CT, and advanced radiation cancer treatment. The center pioneered treatment protocols for the application of radiation treatment and cross-sectional imaging.
