How It Works


Side Effects

More Information

The first question that people generally ask about chemotherapy is whether or not they will lose their hair. Many patients rank hair loss as their most feared and experienced side effect of chemotherapy treatment.

OHC is the exclusive regional provider of the Paxman Scalp Cooling System. Also known as the ‘cold cap’, scalp cooling can be used to combat chemotherapy-induced alopecia (hair loss) and has a positive impact on the confidence, strength and hope of the people that choose to use it.

The Paxman System was recently named one of Cleveland Clinic’s Top 10 Medical Innovations of 2018. The list of up-and-coming technologies was selected by a panel of Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists and was announced on October 27, 2017 at a presentation at the 2017 Medical Innovation Summit.
