Preventing Hair Loss During Chemotherapy

Technology allows cancer patients to keep their hair while undergoing chemotherapy.

Battling cancer is hard, and some of the side effects of treatment—such as hair loss during chemotherapy—compound the struggle.

That’s why UNC REX Healthcare is using technology called the DigniCap Scalp Cooling System that minimizes hair loss during chemotherapy treatments. Check out the video to learn how it works and hear from a patient who has used it.
