Intra-operative radiotherapy is when a very localised, high dose of radiation is given at the same time as the surgical treatment. The London Clinic is one of the few sites in the UK to offer treatment with the Carl Zeiss Intrabeam® system - a miniaturised X-ray device which is located within our on-site theatres.

The London Clinic works with leading surgeons and oncologists in the field to offer this treatment for Breast, Colorectal and Brain indications.

Intra-operative Radiotherapy for Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is primarily treated with surgery but in some cases, in order to help reduce the chance of recurrence, intra-operative radiotherapy can be given during the operation. This dose is usually given as a boost in addition to external beam radiotherapy to deliver a safe and optimal dose to help treat the area of disease. The London Clinic works with leading surgeons and oncologists in this field to provide this treatment and were the first in the UK to use the Zeiss Intrabeam system with specifically designed “flat applicators” for colorectal cancer treatments.
