DigniCap Scalp Cooling System
DigniCap®, the first FDA-cleared scalp cooling system, is an innovative treatment designed to help ease one of the most common and troublesome side effects of cancer treatment — hair loss.
For over a decade, DigniCap has successfully helped thousands of patients outside the United States. Already in use at dozens of medical centers across the country and hundreds of infusion centers worldwide, DigniCap provides continuous cooling with high efficacy, safety and comfort.
In a recent pivotal trial published in JAMA (The Journal of the American Medical Association) this year, researchers found that DigniCap prevented hair loss in 66.3 percent of patients receiving adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer, compared to the control group of patients experienced significant hair loss.
Though DigniCap has already helped many people with hair loss, it recently received expanded FDA clearance. This means that DigniCap now is cleared for even more patients undergoing chemotherapy infusions, including those with solid tumor cancers like breast, prostate, ovarian, uterine, lung and other tumors.
DigniCap is now available at the START Center. For more information about DigniCap, or to find out if you’re a candidate, call 210-745-6841 today.
