Treatment for Head & Neck Cancer

Image-guided Tumour Ablation


  More recent advances have added another tool to the anti-cancer arsenal – thermal ablation, whereby tumours are heated or cooled to temperatures that cause the tumour cells to die.


  This treatment was pioneered at The Middlesex Hospital (UCLH) where Professor Bill Lees and Dr Alice Gillams, who are internationally renowned experts in this field, run one of the longest established and largest practices in the world. The Harley street Clinic established this service in 2000 when it was the first private hospital in the UK to offer this therapy.


  Other cancer treatments involving radiation  include gamma knife treatment for lesions within the skull and CyberKnife which can treat tumours that were previously very difficult and sometimes dangerous to treat.
