Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy unit

Radiotherapy can be used to treat many different types of cancer

It works by destroying the DNA inside cancer cells to prevent them from reproducing, and shrinking cancerous tumours.

The treatment can be administered from outside of the body using x-rays, or from within the body – this is known as internal radiotherapy.

Radiotherapy can be given as treatment to control the cancer, delivered directly to tumour cells, which minimises the effect on surrounding tissue. If the cancer cannot be cured, it can also be given to relieve pain or minimise symptoms (palliative care).


What Radiotherapy Treatments are available at Bupa Cromwell Hospital?

At Bupa Cromwell Hospital, we regularly perform three types of private radiotherapy treatments. These are:

  • TomoTherapy
    This is one of the most advanced cancer treatment systems available, and Bupa Cromwell Hospital is the only private hospital in the UK to offer it. The doctor checks the location of the tumour before each session, and then painless and precise radiation therapy based on a customised plan.
  • Gamma Knife
    Despite the name, Gamma Knife treatment does not involve surgery. The most effective treatment for single and multiple brain metastases, which can occur as secondary tumours in patients with melanoma, breast and lung cancers.

  • Xstrahl Therapy
    Uses low energy x-rays to treat both malignant and non-malignant (benign) conditions of the skin and bone.
