What is radiotherapy?
Radiotherapy uses radiation, such as x-rays, gamma rays, electron beams or protons to destroy or damage cancer cells and stop them from growing and multiplying.
It is a highly specialised service offered at the Gippsland Cancer Care Centre by Gippsland Radiation Oncology, a satellite service of Alfred Health in Melbourne.
Gippsland Radiation Oncology has two Linear Accelerators delivering the most up to date advancements in radiation therapy and cancer care.
It also features a dedicated superficial radiotherapy unit for skin cancer.
The service is fully funded by Medicare so there are no out-of-pocket expenses for you.
