The Christie Clinic works with a team of cancer specialists who are experts in the treatment of all types of liver tumours, whether primary (the first location in the body where a cancer grows, e.g. hepatocellular carcinoma) or secondary (also known as a metastasis or metastatic cancer which occurs when cancerous cells spread around the body from a primary site). Most commonly, these liver metastases develop from a primary tumour in the breast, bowel or lung, but can come from anywhere in the body, including neuroendocrine tumours, cholangiocarcinoma and ocular melanoma.
It can be difficult to remove liver cancers with surgery. However, a number of alternatives have been developed and our team of clinicians are highly trained and experienced in the use of selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) and other complex targeted therapies for treating malignancy in the liver.
Our modern inpatient and outpatient facilities allow patients to experience the finest modern anticancer treatments and cutting edge technology delivered by a highly experienced team of specialists in comfortable surroundings that include:
- 34 en-suite inpatient rooms with entertainment systems.
- 8 outpatient consulting rooms fitted with the latest equipment.
- 12 individual chemotherapy day care pods, each equipped with an entertainment system.
- Full support services, including a dedicated dietician and physiotherapist, a team of counselling psychologists, and complementary therapists.
