Customized Solutions

We understand that while patients may be suffering from the same disease, each individual's experiences and set of challenges is different. This is why we endeavor to customize all treatment to fit each patient's individual needs. We also strive to keep up-to-date with advances in medical technology and cutting-edge treatment methods, and offer the following special arrangements:

Timely Treatment: We aim to keep waiting times for treatment as short as possible, as far as circumstances allow. Following diagnosis and the decision to undergo TomoTherapy or a CyberKnife operation, the first treatment session will be arranged within two weeks.
Adaptive Treatment Planning: The length of a TomoTherapy cycle can range from several to tens of sessions. As tumours may move or shrink during treatment, a second assessment will be conducted when necessary so the treatment can be adjusted accordingly.
Package Charges: To avoid uncertainty over financial cost, we have created a package charging policy for our TomoTherapy service. You will be clearly informed of all applicable charges. The package charge does not include consultation fees.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Our Center is the only place in Hong Kong that exclusively offers both TomoTherapy and CyberKnife treatment. With the use of this leading image navigation technology, tumours can be located accurately and radiation can be delivered to multiple target areas of various sizes and shapes with precision.






TomoTherapy

TomoTherapy is an image-guided radiation therapy system

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT)
Megavoltage computed tomography (MVCT) is able to compare the latest location of tumour and neighboring organs with the scan conducted before every treatment. Adjustment for errors will be made automatically and then confirmed manually, providing a high accuracy up to 1mm which allows the radiation to reach the target location of treatment even more precisely.

which accurately locates tumours and adjusts doses of radiation accordingly, thus minimizing any harm to neighbouring tissues and organs. With an intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)

Intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT)
The dose can be adjusted by the shape and size of the tumor in order to focus the high dose only on the tumor area, protecting the normal cells. It does not only eliminate cancer cells accurately, but also avoids adversely affecting important organs nearby, thus minimizing the side effects caused by radiotherapy.

technique, the device can deliver beams from 360 degrees. The built-in CT scan function captures images of tumours immediately before treatment sessions, which allows for a very precise targeting of tumours while ensuring the safeguarding of normal tissue.


CyberKnife

This stereotactic radiosurgery machine can deliver more than 1,000 beams of high-dose X-ray to a tumour at a time. By using real-time image navigation technology to locate the tumour, the machine maintains high accuracy, and has an error margin of less than 1mm when used on the brain. It provides an alternative therapy for dealing with tumours which are difficult to remove with conventional surgery or by traditional treatment methods.

Chemotherapy and Targeted Therapy
  • The Quadruple Tracking System ensures the correct type and dose of medication is used in each treatment, either via intravenous injection or oral medication.
  • On arrival at the therapy room for the first chemotherapy session, patients will be given a detailed explanation of the therapy during a consult with a pharmacist, who will also answer any questions regarding medication.
  • During therapy, experienced oncology nurses will provide excellent care and ensure patients' comfort.

Surgery

Surgery is the most common treatment for cancer. Our Center has an integrated operating room which ensures operations are conducted efficiently.

In addition to conventional surgery, we offer minimally invasive surgery. This option is becoming increasingly popular as it minimizes bleeding, as well as reduces the risk of lacerations and infection during hospitalization. The technique is especially suited for procedures on areas such as the pelvis, the abdomen, and the prostate gland.

Functions of surgery:

  • Biopsy for diagnosis and to determine treatment
  • Removal of cancer cells spreading over large areas
  • Preemptive removal of tissues prone to pathological changes
  • Reconstructive surgery to restore damaged body parts after treatment (commonly used on breast cancer patients).
