What world-class cancer care meant for these patients
As the UK’s leading private cancer specialist, we’re dedicated to providing the latest evidence-based treatments from around the world and care tailored to you – without delay.
Our aim is to change the way people experience cancer treatment and care and we go a little further to ensure you can achieve the best possible life outcome.
A new type of radiotherapy
We use some of the most advanced techniques to treat all types of cancer, including advanced diagnostic imaging, precision radiotherapy techniques which are proven to be safe and effective for difficult-to-reach tumours while limiting dose to healthy tissue and high dose radiotherapy for shorter treatment duration.
In recent months, more than 50 prostate cancer patients at GenesisCare have become the first in the UK to undergo a completely new type of radiotherapy. The MRIdian is a type of linear accelerator – which directs beams of energy to permanently destroy cancer cells – combined with an in-built MRI scanner. This allows the clinicians to see live images of what they’re treating, making it possible to target tumours with unrivalled precision.
