The investment in the Papillon machine is already showing success, with some of those treated seeing complete resolution and now, with the introduction of a new database, St.Luke’s will be at the heart of tracking Papillon treatment effectiveness worldwide

The whole field of oncology is changing to focus on targeted treatments and with increased knowledge at the molecular level, we can provide better, more personalised treatments and improve outcomes

Dr. Dhillon, Consultant medical oncologist

A scan revealed that conventional radiotherapy had shrunk the tumour to a level which made me an ideal candidate for Papillon treatment. It was a great relief to me that I didn’t have to go through major surgery at my age
