Department of Medical Oncology
The Medical Oncology department at Action Cancer Hospital provides excellent in-and out-patient and day-care facilities. It offers chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, supportive care and bone marrow transplantation services to cancer patients who are undergoing treatment at the hospital. 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.
During the treatment patients are given chemotherapy drugs in the form of tablets and injections. The treatment is given once in a few weeks for a period of time depending upon the condition of patients and the nature of cancer. Prior to starting with the treatment, all side-effects of chemotherapy are managed through pre-medications. 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 keep ourselves updated with the latest drugs, procedures, and innovations in the field of medical oncology to give best possible care to cancer patients. We also have patient-friendly facilities such as pain management and supportive care clinic at the hospital to serve our patients better.
The department of medical oncology is equipped with the best-in-class chemo-delivery technology. All our nurses are highly trained, with years of experience in the field. We have a tradition of constantly updating ourselves with latest technological innovations in field of medical oncology.
