DigniCap Hair Preservation

Many patients facing chemotherapy treatments are daunted by the thought of losing their hair. Hair-loss (alopecia), especially for women, can significantly impact a patient’s self-esteem during an already overwhelming time. Fortunately, there are advanced technologies which offer solutions to chemotherapy-induced alopecia.

The DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System is an FDA-cleared device clinically proven to reduce hair loss from chemotherapy in patients with solid tumors. Patients receive treatments through a scalp-cooling cap. Temperature-controlled coolant circulates through the cap in order to decrease blood flow to the scalp. The cooling process limits the amount of chemotherapy absorbed by hair follicles resulting in significantly reduced hair loss.

Oncology Specialists of Charlotte (OSC) is the first oncology practice in the area utilizing the DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System. The DigniCap® system offers OSC patients the potential of reducing hair loss during chemotherapy. It is our hope that OSC patients can utilize the system to retain dignity and self-esteem during otherwise painful circumstances.

  • New patient: you have a medical condition that is or could be cancerous or a blood disorder
  • Transfer care: you are moving into the area and need an oncologist/hematologist, or you are currently under the care of a local oncologist/hematologist and would like to transfer care to one of our physicians
  • 2nd Opinion: you have been diagnosed with cancer or a blood disorder and would like to get a second opinion on the prognosis and treatment course
  • Former patient: if you have not been to the office in 3 years or more, you will need to get a referral sent in by a physician to re-establish care
