Radiotherapy at UPMC Whitfield Hospital

Setting the standard for radiotherapy at UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre at Whitfield.

We are the dedicated radiotherapy center for patients in the South East.

Radiation therapy is one of the main treatment methods used in cancer care. This method of treatment can be used as a sole treatment for cancer or in combination with surgery, chemotherapy, and/or hormone therapy.

UPMC Hillman Cancer Centre offers world-class radiotherapy care with close-to-home convenience. Our patients have access to a wide range of treatment options. We incorporate techniques using a variety of photon and electron energies and are experienced in performing prostate brachytherapy.

By using combined global expertise and resources, our multi-disciplinary team works together to implement quality oversight, advanced medical training, performance data tracking and research programs.

Advanced technology combined with our specialised team of consultant medical and radiation oncologists, radiation therapists, radiation oncology nurses and medical physicists work together to determine the best course of treatment and care for each patient’s specific needs.
