Pioneering Treatment for Liver Cancer 

The London Clinic is one of the few private hospitals that offers Selective Internal Radiotherapy (SIRT), a pioneering treatment used to accurately target primary liver cancer or cancer that has spread to the liver from other parts of the body such as bowel cancer.  

Millions of tiny radioactive beads (microspheres) are injected into the arteries that supply the cancers and they selectively treat the cancers in the liver. The microspheres block the tumour vessels and they emit radiotherapy directly to the cancers from inside the body. SIRT can also be given in combination with chemotherapy.

Patients may benefit from SIRT therapy if their liver cancers cannot be removed by surgery. SIRT can be used to treat secondary tumours in the liver that started in the bowel or spread to the liver from other organs such as the breast or stomach.  It can also treat primary liver cancer.

Our Consultant on SIRT

One of our oncology consultants, Professor Ricky Sharma, talks to the Marylebone Journal about the benefits of using SIRT as part of treatment.
