Radiotherapeutic Oncology

"The techniques applied in the Radiation Oncology at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra are of the latest generation and are currently only available in a few centres in Spain".

DR. FELIPE CALVO
CODIRECTOR. RADIOTHERAPEUTIC ONCOLOGY DEPARTMENT

The Clinic´s Department of Radiotherapeutic Oncology has extensive experience in external and intensity-modulated radiotherapy. In addition, we apply various medical-surgical techniques of latest generation that are currently only present in few Spanish centres.

The Clinic has, at its headquarters in Madrid, the most advanced and first in-hospital Proton Therapy Unit based in a cancer centre, which offers all its healthcare, academic and research support and the services proper to a third level hospital.

We are one of the international benchmarks in the performance of intraoperative implants and radiation treatment with high rate brachytherapy technique during the post-operative period. Moreover, we have one of the most extensive experiences worldwide in the treatment of intraoperative brachytherapy of head and neck tumours, soft tissue sarcomas and gynaecological tumours.

We use radiotherapy under stereotaxic conditions, which allows us to apply several treatment sessions under very high precision conditions.

A highly specialised nursing team provides comprehensive medical care through coordination, assistance, control and monitoring of the various symptoms and side effects.
