The Oncology Centre
The Oncology Centre is the only independent unit in KZN offering state of the art Radiotherapy treatment facilities, chemotherapy facilities, a dedicated Oncology CT scanner and onsite laboratory facilities.
Drs Landers and James are one of the few practices associated with ICON (Independent Clinical Oncology Network), which is a network offering cancer treatment at reduced rates to affiliated medical aid schemes. This has resulted in sections of the population, who would not have had access to private treatment, being treated timeously. Cancer Doc has established an integrated network of radiologists, psychologists, dieticians, physiotherapists and pharmacists throughout KZN to work in ensuring patients are equipped with medical and social support to map the road ahead.
Dr Gregory Landers qualified as a Radiation Oncologist in 1989. He worked as a registrar at Addington Hospital in Durban and entered independent private practice in 1993. In 2008, The Oncology Centre was established.
Dr Landers attends regular international conferences to keep abreast with advances in the field. He is a firm believer in practicing evidence based medicine and conducts continuous research in contribution to the progression of oncology study.
When on the rare occasion Dr Landers is not at the practice, he can usually be found fishing, creating something in his workshop or kitchen, fixing vintage cars or working on his farm.
