Dr Richard Shaffer, Consultant oncologist


Special interest

I treat prostate and bladder cancer in Basingstoke

My research was centred on the comparison of a new technical radiotherapy technique called VMAT (subsequently known as RapidArc) with intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) for various disease sites, including prostate, brain and paediatric tumors.

I treat patients with brain tumors and skin cancer in the SWSH network and patients with early Dupuytren's disease using radiotherapy.
