At HCA UK our patients have access to state-of-the-art operating theatres, and our specialist consultants regularly conduct highly-complex surgical procedures with the assistance of expert surgical teams. Surgery can be used to treat cancer, further diagnose the type and stage of cancer you may have or reduce your risk of developing cancer.

Chemotherapy listing
Chemotherapy and systemic anti-cancer therapies

Systemic anti-cancer therapies (SACTs) are types of cancer treatments that treat cancer cells in the entire body. Types of SACTs include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted drugs and immunotherapy. At HCA UK we work with the very best medical oncologists and clinical oncologists to provide the latest systemic anti-cancer therapies. Our team of specialists work in multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) to make sure you get the treatment plan that is best for you.

Radiotherapy listing

Radiotherapy uses high-energy external radiation beams to target tumour cells with the intention of controlling, reducing and, where possible, eradicating tumours. At HCA UK, we have a comprehensive private radiotherapy service, offering the latest treatment techniques and advanced technology. Our specialists provide patient-centred treatment for a wide range of malignant and non-malignant tumours.

Interventional radiology listing
Interventional radiology

Interventional radiology is a minimally invasive, image-guided treatment and diagnostic technique. Our team of highly skilled and experienced interventional radiologists use a number of different techniques to treat cancer including embolisation (cutting off the blood supply to tumours and directly targeting them with chemotherapy or radioactivity), ablation (freezing or burning a tumour) and irreversible electroporation (IRE).

bone marrow and stem cell
Bone marrow and stem cell transplant

Stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant is a type of treatment that replaces damaged blood cells with healthy ones. Stem cell transplants are a complex medical procedure and can only be provided at specialist centres. They have been used to treat blood cancers and disorders for many years, and more recently have been used to treat some auto-immune conditions, specifically multiple sclerosis.

Getting a second opinion

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, whether or not you have started treatment, a second opinion can give you reassurance and peace of mind.  

Our second opinion service is led by expert consultants.  They will provide a comprehensive review of your current and past medical history, to identify the best treatment options for you. This review may identify new treatment options or simply confirm you are already receiving the best treatment.  Either way it can help you make an informed decision about what is best for you.
