We are committed to providing each patient with the most appropriate treatment as quickly as possible
At Spire Portsmouth Hospital we have a highly skilled team of consultant surgeons who are very experienced in cancer surgery. Your consultant surgeon will be with you throughout your journey, from your first consultation to aftercare and follow-up.
You will be looked after in your own private room and cared for by our skilled nursing team who will do everything they can to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
We offer the latest innovations in chemotherapy (drug treatment) for a wide variety of malignant disease, including most solid tumours and cancers of the blood.
Our highly skilled team of oncologists and specialist nurses are dedicated to making your treatment as comfortable as possible. Your consultant oncologist will discuss an individually tailored plan to suit your clinical condition and treatment requirements.
With chemotherapy, hair loss (alopecia) is a known side-effect of several drugs, although not all will cause it. With some drugs scalp cooling can be used to prevent the hair falling out. This involves the use of a refrigerated scalp cooling system applied to the head during chemotherapy. It works by reducing the blood flow to the scalp limiting the amount of chemotherapy reaching the hair follicles and thereby helping to prevent hair loss.
Advancements in radiotherapy technology means tumours can be targeted with a very high degree of accuracy, avoiding damage to healthy tissue and organs which causes less expected side-effects than conventional radiotherapy.
The expert teams at Genesis Care (previously known as CancerPartnersUK) use some of the latest and most effective radiotherapy techniques available, including Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT).
Genesis Care works closely with the cancer care professionals based at Spire Portsmouth Hospital to ensure continuity of care and easy access to the very best facilities and medical teams for all your cancer treatment needs.
Please speak to your specialist oncologist or to Genesis Care if you require further information.
