Kingman, Arizona, February 28, 2019 – Kingman Regional Medical Center’s Cancer Center now offers intrathecal chemotherapy for cancers affecting the central nervous system, including the brain or spinal fluid.

Intrathecal chemotherapy is a treatment in which anticancer drugs are injected into the fluid-filled space between the thin layers of tissue that cover the brain and spinal cord. The treatment is delivered through a small port placed into the scalp.

Medical staff at the Cancer Center completed specialized training to be certified in intrathecal chemotherapy, which requires more monitoring than other therapies.

“We are excited to have another tool available to us to ensure that we give our patients the best possible care,” said KRMC Medical Oncologist Dr. Edgardo Rivera.

As the largest cancer treatment provider in northwest Arizona, KRMC offers skilled expertise combined with some of modern medicine’s most advanced technologies in treating cancer. These capabilities enable us to provide highly effective treatment and exceptional care for all types of cancer, including complex and advanced-stage cases.
