Radiation Oncology Center Becomes European Center of Excellence

04 May 2016

The HYGEIA Hospital Radiation Oncology Center became a European Reference Center after the latest agreement signed with Elekta, due to its unique, advanced equipment and the top- level services it offers for cancer treatment.

 

The Radiation Oncology Center is also the only one in Greece to have been selected by the International RadioSurgery Association (IRSA) as a Center of Excellence for Stereotactic Radiotherapy & Radiosurgery.

The HYGEIA Radiation Oncology Center is the most modern and well equipped such center in Greece and one of the best ones in Europe. It is equipped with cutting – edge technology (the unique for Greece VERSA HDΤΜ, Synergy AgilityΤΜ, AxesseΤΜ with the Hexapod robotic treatment couchtop, and Gamma Knife Perfexion) and has long experience in latest advanced radiotherapy techniques (IMRT, VMAT, IGRT, Sterotaxy and Radiosurgery), being the first Hospital to implement them in Greece, with the aim of offering optimal radiotherapy to its patients. Additionally, it has a special medical team dedicated to pediatric radiotherapy. It has the largest volume of pediatric patients in Greece and it is the only one that implements all the state of the art techniques, aiming at fully curing the children and preserving their quality of life.

Commenting on these distinctions, Mr Andreas Kartapanis, HYGEIA CEO, noted “It is a great honor for our Hospital to have been selected as a Reference Center by a large multinational such as Elekta; to have been selected as a Center where the company’s equipment and systems will be developed, tested and displayed. The HYGEIA Radiation Oncology Center treats over 1,000 patients annually, while since 2009, more than 1,200 patients have undergone stereotactic radiosurgery. The personalized treatment approach, combined with the Center’s integrated systems, offers the option of selecting the optimal technique for each patient.”
