Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy will be recommended for approx. 67% of all cancer patients at some point during their care cycle.

As of May 17, 2017 you now have the option of staying on island to have your radiation treatment.  Knowing that you will receive the same level of care and treatment you would at an overseas facility, you can now choose to stay home surrounded with family and friends with the ability to continue to work and partake in daily routines.

Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre has a state-of-the-art, purpose built radiation therapy unit staffed by highly qualified and experienced team lead by Dr. Chris Fosker.  In addition our team works in clinical affiliation with the specialised team at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center.

We understand that the prospect of radiation therapy may make you anxious, particularly with regard to side effects and safety concerns. We want to assure you that your treatment plan will be customized for you and carried out by a team that includes physicians, nurses, radiation therapists, medical physicists, and experts who calculate radiation doses. Learn more about radiation therapy safety.

The Department of Radiation Oncology at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center plays a central role in treating adults and children with cancer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Children's Hospital. Our care providers work closely together to develop an individualized radiation therapy plan for each patient, and to provide supportive resources before and after treatment
