Guy’s Hospital opens regional pelvic cancer surgical centre

Guy’s Hospital has opened a new regional centre to specialise in pelvic cancers and complex surgery.

Guy’s Cancer Pelvic Surgical Centre will care for patients from the capital and across south east England, and specialise pelvic cancers such as prostate, ovarian and testicular cancer.

Dr Majid Kazmi, chief of cancer services at Guy’s and St Thomas’, said: “Our cancer services have a strong reputation for pioneering new techniques and treatment for patients. This centre will open up that expertise to more people than ever before.”

Teams from the different surgical specialties will now see patients jointly in clinics and have regular theatre days for shared operating sessions, which will improve treatment and outcomes for pelvic cancer patients needing complex surgery.
