The Hyperthermia Cancer Institute (HCI) is the premiere center for thermal oncology specializing in hyperthermia treatment. Hyperthermia treatment heats cancerous tumors which can have many beneficial effects, typically with little or no adverse reactions.
Hyperthermia is shown to have significantly greater results when used in combination with radiation therapy and/or chemotherapy. Heat generated by hyperthermia can directly kill cancer cells and can enhance the ability of the body’s immune system to fight the cancer. Hyperthermia can sensitize cancer cells to radiation therapy, thereby making your radiation treatments significantly more effective than radiation therapy alone. The two therapies work together to fight the growing cancer cells. Heat also prevents cancer cells from repairing the cancer-damaging effects of radiation.
