Our Pioneering Technology
At Aspen Healthcare we are committed to providing our patients with:
- advanced medical, surgical and oncological treatments
- access to the latest drugs
- acquiring the best treatment technology available
- the latest digital technology to support clinical and patient administration systems, including electronic eMDT and integrated clinical audit systems.
In 2014 Cancer Centre London became the first private clinic in London to provide targeted radiotherapy with the Elekta Versa HD linear accelerator system. This system is the latest advancement in radiotherapy technology and is used in managing a range of cancers in the head and neck, lung, gastrointestinal system, breast and prostate. It has the ability to continually reshape the radiation beam to the fine contours of the tumour so an extremely precise, higher dose of radiation can be delivered, reducing treatment times and preserving healthy tissue. This machine has been described by Aspen Healthcare’s CEO, Des Shiels, as “the cutting edge of the most recent technology in the provision of radiotherapy”.
The Leeds Gamma Knife Centre, part of Nova Healthcare, is based in one of the largest and most technically advanced cancer treatment centres in Europe (the Leeds Cancer Centre). Gamma Knife® Surgery (stereotactic radiosurgery) is a non-invasive technique that has proven effective in a wide variety of conditions including brain tumours and arteriovenous malformations. In late 2015, the Gamma Knife Perfexion® was enhanced by the addition of Elekta’s new Icon system meaning the most precise radiosurgery available can now be delivered. As the procedure is non-invasive there is no incision, no pain and, in most cases, no hospitalisation.
