FDA Expands Use of Treatment That Prevents Hair Loss During Chemotherapy

Updated: Feb 15, 2020

The START Center for Cancer Care was recently featured in an article on News 4 San Antonio about the addition and use of DigniCap® in their treatment facilities. DigniCap is the first and only FDA-cleared scalp cooling system that helps people undergoing chemotherapy to combat one of the most troublesome side effects of cancer treatment — hair loss.

What’s more, the START Center is one of the only cancer centers in Texas currently offering DigniCap. Because DigniCap isn’t covered by insurance, the ThriveWell Cancer Foundation is currently providing financial assistance to patients who need it. This makes it possible for many people to have the opportunity to receive this innovative and life-changing treatment.

For more information about DigniCap, call the START Center for Cancer Care at 210-593-5790 today.
