Anaesthesia for Cancer Surgery

The Oxford University Hospitals is a base for leading experts in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and associated conditions.

The majority of our services are on the Churchill site in the Oxford Cancer and Haematology Centre but patients are also treated at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and the West Wing:

  • Complex investigations take place in the Imaging Centre.
  • Surgical treatment benefits from the suite of ten operating theatres.
  • An intensive care unit cares for patients with life-threatening conditions and following major surgery.
  • There are extensive facilities for haematology services.
  • Cancers specific to women are treated in the Jane Ashley Centre.
  • Complex radiation treatments are planned and delivered within the Radiotherapy Department.

A wide range of surgical expertise is available in the Oxford Cancer and Haematology Centre. Specialist surgery is carried out by the teams responsible for management of the following cancer types:

  • Breast
  • Gynaecological
  • Upper gastrointestinal (including oesophagus and stomach)
  • Hepatopancreatobiliary (including liver and pancreas)
  • Lower gastrointestinal (including colon and rectum)
  • Head and neck
  • Thyroid and endocrine cancers
  • Urological (including bladder and prostate)

In addition, Oxford University Hospitals is a leading centre for Sarcoma surgery and Neurosurgery, both specialties which would provide the Fellow with valuable training opportunities.

For each cancer type, an experienced team of surgeons is available to provide first class treatment.

Plastic and reconstructive surgeons are key members of the Centre’s surgical teams.
