Radiation Therapy

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

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.

Every Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre (the Centre) patient in need of radiation therapy receives care based on an individualised treatment plan developed in close collaboration with specialists at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center (DF/BWCC) in Boston.  The Centre’s state-of-the-art Radiation Therapy Unit, which opened in 2017, is operated in clinical affiliation with DF/BWCC and was designed and developed with DF/BWCC. The Radiation Therapy Unit uses the same treatment systems, software, radiation therapy protocols, and quality assurance programmes that are utilised at DF/BWCC, ensuring patients receive world-class treatment that incorporates the most current international standards in cancer care.
 
Within DF/BWCC, there are 12 specialised cancer treatment centres and experts in every type of cancer. Through the Centre’s clinical affiliation with DF/BWCC, patients receiving radiation therapy treatments can be confident that they have access to this expertise without leaving Bermuda. Radiation oncologist and the Centre’s radiation therapy director Dr Chris Fosker and the experienced radiation oncology team at the Radiation Therapy Unit work in conjunction with their DF/BWCC colleagues, remotely and through care delivered on-island, to provide cutting-edge radiation therapy. Through this ongoing affiliation,  the Centre’s patients will also have access to the latest advances in radiation treatment.
