Due to rising numbers of COVID-19 infections in our community, NHO strongly encourages the use of medical-grade masks for patients and visitors. If you do not have a medical-grade mask (3-ply surgical or procedure mask) we will be happy to provide one for you at the clinic. See any NHO team member for assistance. Thank you for helping us keep each other safe!

DigniCap®

The Intelligent Scalp Cooling System™

For some patients, the prospect of losing their hair is more than just a matter of vanity. It’s an unwelcome reminder of their disease for the patient and their loved ones. Nebraska Hematology-Oncology offers the DigniCap® scalp cooling system to patients undergoing chemotherapy to help diminish the added emotional burden from hair loss.Dignicap Logo

DigniCap® has been used successfully outside the United States. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) granted clearance for infusion centers across the U.S. to offer patients the DigniCap® system while they receive their chemotherapy treatments.


How it Works

The DigniCap® scalp cooling system features a patented tight-fitting silicone cooling cap that is placed directly on the head. A liquid coolant circulates throughout the silicone cap, delivering consistent and controlled cooling to all areas of the scalp. These factors together reduce the risk of hair loss.
