Hyperthermia treatment has proven benefits for those with cancerous tumors, typically with few to no adverse effects. At the Hyperthermia Cancer Institute (HCI) we specialize in administering hyperthermia treatments using the Sonotherm 1000 machine. This machine utilizes the power of ultrasound energy to heat humors to approximately 109 degrees F for 45 minutes as far in as 10 cm inside the body. Hyperthermia has the greatest capacity to heal with performed in combination with radiation and/or chemotherapy.
In addition to killing cancer cells, hyperthermia treatment can also enhance the body’s immune system and ability to fight off cancer. Hyperthermia also makes cancer cells more sensitive and receptive to radiation treatment. Most patients who use hyperthermia treatments experience no side effects during their treatments.
Our goal at the HCI is to create a calm, friendly space for patients to receive optimal care. If you are interested in learning more, contact our office.
