• Targeted Therapy
It is use of monoclonal antibodies (or mAb) or tablets to specifically target cells with specific receptors on tumour. It has fewer side effects as compared to conventional chemotherapy.
• Hormonal Therapy
It helps in certain tumours which are hormone sensitive like breast and prostate cancer.
It is a form of treatment which stimulates the body’s immune system to destroy cancer cells especially useful in Lung and Head & Neck Cancers.
Our experienced oncologists use chemotherapeutic drugs to treat various cancers, often with other oncologic procedures. Medical oncology improves the efficacy of surgical and radiation oncology when cancer is diagnosed early. It improves the quality of lives of patients in advanced stage of cancer and prolongs their survival.
The department is equipped with the most advanced chemo-delivery technology and equipment to make the experience easier and better for patients.
We make sure patients complete their drug cycles within the prescribed time-limit and move to the next level of treatment according to the plan. We are updated with the latest drugs, procedures and innovations in the field of medical oncology to give best possible care to cancer patients.
