Hyperthermia is a procedure in which body tissue is exposed to high
temperatures (up to 106 F). Heat may help to shrink tumors by
damaging cells or depriving them of substances they need to live.
Hyperthermia is almost always used with other forms of therapy
(radiation therapy, chemotherapy and biological therapy) to try to
increase their effectiveness. Local hyperthermia refers to heat that is
applied to a very small area, such as a tumor. Simon Kramer Cancer
Institute is pleased to offer hyperthermia treatments to our patients.
