Treatments

Highly experienced in the treatment of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary and head and neck cancers, Dr Sibtain is skilled in the latest and most advanced therapies, including:

Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT)

Intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) uses advanced technology to shape a radiotherapy beam to the exact size and shape of a tumour, avoiding damage to surrounding healthy tissue.  Precise and varying doses can be applied to different areas of the tumour, maximising the effectiveness of the therapy and reducing side-effects.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

Stereotactic radiosurgery (also known as stereotactic radiotherapy) is another new technology to deliver targeted radiation to a tumour.  Most commonly used for small brain tumours such as acoustic neuroma, secondary brain tumours, menigioma and pituitary tumours, it involves the application of a very high dose of radiation to a very small precise area. 

Stereotactic radiosurgery can be delivered from specialised machines (Gamma Knife and CyberKnife), or from a conventional radiotherapy machine (linear accelerator) that has been adapted for the purpose.  Totally non-invasive and with an excellent record for successful treatment, it does not result in hair loss or nausea and patients can normally resume everyday activities within a couple of days.
