Dr Sarah HarrisClinical Oncologist, Clinical Director – The London Radiotherapy Centre at Guy’s and St Thomas’
Dr Sarah Harris is a consultant clinical oncologist specialising in breast and prostate cancers. She treats patients with radiotherapy and drug therapy, particularly advanced radiotherapy techniques which cause minimal side effects. This enables her to treat breast cancer patients with external radiotherapy without damaging neighbouring areas such as the heart.
Sarah also offers intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT), a single dose during surgery to remove the tumour, which may prevent the need for further radiotherapy.
Sarah is part of the multi-disciplinary team which assesses patients’ suitability for intra-operative radiotherapy. This is given as a single treatment to the breast in some patients and may avoid a longer course of external radiotherapy.
