Gem State Cancer & Blood Specialists offers the FDA-cleared DigniCap® treatment as an option for our patients to help diminish the burden from hair loss.
Hair loss is a well-documented side effect of many chemotherapy drugs. The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System offers patients the possibility to minimize hair loss from certain chemotherapy drugs. For over a decade DigniCap has successfully helped thousands of patients globally.
How it works
DigniCap features a patented cooling cap that is placed directly on the head. A liquid coolant circulates throughout the cap, delivering consistent and controlled cooling to all areas of the scalp. These factors together reduce the risk of hair loss.
DigniCap can be used by patients receiving chemotherapy to treat solid tumors for breast cancer as well as prostate, ovarian, uterine, lung and other tissues. Please note that scalp cooling is effective with many chemotherapy drugs, but not all.
