  • Biography

    After graduating with distinction from St George’s Hospital Medical School (University of London), Dr Gaya went on to study clinical oncology at Imperial College and St Bartholomew’s Hospital. He was then awarded a Cancer Research UK MD Fellowship at University College London.

    Dr Gaya continues to be an active researcher with a focus on functional cancer imaging, especially earlier assessment of treatment reponses and evaluation of oxygen and blood supplies within tumours. His chief clinical interests are solid tumours such as colorectal, liver, lung, oesophageal, pancreatic and stomach cancers. He treats patients with biological therapy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as single mode or combination treatments. Where possible, Dr Gaya uses cutting edge radiotherapy technologies including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), tomotherapy and stereotactic radiosurgery (e.g. TrueBeam).
