Dr Matthew Williams
Dr Matt Williams specialises in the treatment of brain tumours, including benign and malignant tumours and brain metastases. He has expanded the use of a second course of radiotherapy (re-irradiation), particularly in combination with chemotherapy. He is one of the few clinicians in the UK to have experience across the range of all three stereotactic platforms (LINAC, CyberKnife and GammaKnife) for delivering highly focused radiotherapy. At The London Clinic he chairs the brain tumour (neuro-oncology) MDT.
Intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT)
We provide intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) for the treatment of breast, colorectal and brain cancer.
