With the most powerful and aggressive radiation therapy for cancer available, the physicians at Gamma West Cancer Services in Layton offer a high treatment success rate. Located at Davis Hospital and Medical Center, treatment options are diverse and multi-faceted. From chemotherapy to proton therapy, our wide range of cancer treatments in Ogden help patients avoid negative side effects and combat pain.

Our doctors all specialize in oncology, which means they focus on treating cancer and can develop a personalized approach to each patient’s condition. Gamma West Cancer Services uses only the latest, most-advanced forms of radiation therapy for many kinds of cancer. At our Davis Hospital and Medical Center location in Layton, we focus on cancer treatment plans with minimal side effects.

One form of treatment now available from our Layton oncologists is intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). During this advanced form of radiation therapy, inverse treatment to the tumor is calculated by a high-powered computer program. The goal of this cancer treatment is reducing exposure to radiation for sensitive surrounding tissue. Dr. Harris provides this treatment at Davis Hospital and was a forerunner of its development at the National Naval Medical Center in Washington D.C. He has since moved to the Layton area as an oncologist and continues to help patients fight cancerous tumors.

Dr. Harris has been studying and improving advancements in radiation technology since 1996 when started at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland. He is a board certified Radiation Oncologist from the American Board of Radiology. Dr. Harris started his career as an oncologist with a B.S. in chemical engineering from Brigham Young University in 1988. He then went on to receive his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in 1992. After an internship at the Naval Hospital in San Diego, California in 1993, he worked at the Submarine Medical Research Laboratory in New London, Connecticut as an Undersea Medical Officer. He is certified by the American Board of Preventative Medicine in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine.

Dr. Hansen earned his medical degree from Creighton University in 1995 after receiving a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Utah in 1992. He then received training in Radiation Oncology from the University of Arizona for five years until he moved back to his home town of Salt Lake City in 2000. Dr. Hansen has been working with Gamma Cancer Services ever since and has performed thousands of brachytherapy procedures. Specializing in treatment for people with breast, prostate, cervix, and endometrial cancer, Dr. Hansen has traveled the USA and Canada instructing other physicians about modern brachytherapy treatment. He operates a busy clinical practice and has been certified by the American Board of Radiology as a Radiation Oncologist.
