How we’re redefining cancer care
GenesisCare is the international leader in cancer care. In Spain, we provide our patients the most advanced radiation oncology, medical oncology, genetic counseling and family cancer treatments. Our patients receive a world-class standard of care and access to the latest innovative treatments that are proven to be effective.
Our state-of-the-art centres provide cutting edge technology including the CyberKnife, a ground breaking robotic radiotherapy machine that allows maximum precision (sub-millimeter) in the treatment of small tumors, continuously adjusting to the movements of the tumor.
At GenesisCare the patient can benefit from easy access to specialized services, such as hypofractionated radiotherapy treatments. This means that the radiation is much more focused and you may only need five sessions whereas with conventional radiotherapy you could have up to 39 sessions.
With a philosophy to treat the whole patient not just the cancer, we use an integrated cancer care approach. Psycho-Oncology, nutrition and the patient school are part of our personalised care programme and are proven to deliver improved patient outcomes.

We have the latest innovations
With the latest evidence-based treatments from around the world, GenesisCare invests in innovative treatments that are proven to be safe and effective and help achieve the best outcomes for our patients.
We treat many types of adult cancers and provide a complete care plan, which includes many of the most innovative treatments as standard.
World standards care
If you need treatment for cancer, we can start a few days after diagnosis.
We know that cancer is a life-changing experience for many people. Our goal is to help you face the emotional and psychological challenge in the most positive way possible together with our psycho-oncology team.
We use some of the most advanced techniques to treat many types of cancers, including precision radiotherapy techniques which, along with high doses, are proven to be effective for difficult-to-treat tumours while limiting dose to healthy tissue and high dose radiotherapy for shorter treatment duration.
It’s important that you have access to the best possible treatment for you and this may be one of the reasons you have chosen to use your private medical insurance or to fund your treatment yourself.
Newer radiotherapy systems for cancer treatment can have better results. But they are not available everywhere.
At GenesisCare we have the latest generation systems to deliver highly targeted radiotherapy for effective tumour treatments with fewer side effects. We provide:
- More ‘controllable’ and accurate types of beam (VMAT and SABR/SRS)
- Sophisticated inbuilt scanners to ‘see’ and constantly adjust where we are treating (SGRT and IGRT)
- Special techniques to protect the heart muscle from coming in the path of the radiation beam (DIBH) for breast cancer treatment
- The tattooless technique that avoids tattoos or permanent skin marks that are made in conventional radiotherapy treatments
- Spacer insertions to protect the rectum during prostate cancer radiotherapy
For some types of cancer, it’s possible to complete radiotherapy in fewer sessions (fractions) without reducing the effectiveness of treatment. This is called hypofractionation.
In some cases it’s possible to have radiotherapy for breast and prostate cancer in just five visits.
This is important because it ensures fewer visits, often fewer side effects and some cancers can respond well to a smaller number of higher doses.
Our highly experienced cancer experts work as teams to ensure that every patient has access to world-class cancer care within days of diagnosis.
