Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. It prevents the growth and division of cancer cells, ultimately resulting in their demise. Depending on the type and stage of the disease, chemotherapy is frequently used in conjunction with other treatments, including surgery, radiation therapy, or immunotherapy.

Our team of oncologists and trained employees at Medicana medical oncology departments is dedicated to providing our patients with the most cutting-edge and efficient chemotherapy treatments. Depending on each patient's specific requirements and medical background, our oncologists employ a range of chemotherapy medications and regimens to treat various types of cancer.

The kind and stage of the cancer, the patient's general health, and other considerations are all taken into account as our oncologists closely collaborate with each patient to design a specific treatment plan. Depending on the patient's condition and reaction to therapy, the length of chemotherapy treatment can range from a few days to several months. Patients take medication during chemotherapy either by an intravenous (IV) line or oral medication.

Our cutting-edge facilities, such as our infusion centers, offer patients a cozy, pleasant setting to get treatments in a secure, encouraging environment. To assist patients and their families in coping with chemotherapy's psychological and physical side effects, our medical oncology departments offer a wide range of support services, including nutrition and psychological support.

At Medicana, we want to give each patient the tailored attention needed to manage their cancer journey and achieve the most outstanding results.

Targeted Therapy


A type of cancer treatment known as targeted therapy tries to attack cancer cells only while causing the most minor damage to healthy cells. It is created to specifically target specific genetic abnormalities or proteins involved in cancer growth and progression, unlike conventional chemotherapy, which affects both cancerous and healthy cells. As a result, the medication is more targeted, more successful, and has fewer side effects.

Our medical oncology departments employ the most recent targeted therapy treatments, including monoclonal antibodies, kinase inhibitors, and immune checkpoint inhibitors. Based on each patient's unique cancer type, stage, and genetic profile, our physicians closely collaborate with them to choose the most targeted therapy approach.

Our oncologists can customize treatment programs and produce remarkably excellent outcomes using cutting-edge technologies and research. We can track treatment progress and modify therapy as necessary thanks to the state-of-the-art medical technology in our medical oncology departments, which includes advanced genomic sequencing technologies and imaging equipment.

At Medicana, we work hard to give our patients the finest cancer treatment and results possible. In addition to having years of experience, Medicana is a top choice for overseas patients looking for medical oncology services because of our dedication to providing the most cutting-edge and efficient treatments.

Hormonal Therapy

A type of cancer treatment called hormonal therapy tackles hormones and how they aid cancer cells in proliferating and growing. This treatment functions by preventing the hormones from being produced or by containing the receptors cancer cells use to absorb hormones. In addition to other cancers, it is frequently used in the treatment of breast and prostate cancer.

Our skilled oncologists and specialist medical teams at Medicana Health Group's medical oncology departments use the most recent hormonal therapy techniques and tools to give our patients the best available treatment options. To offer a thorough and interdisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, our staff keeps abreast of the most recent hormonal therapy research and collaborates closely with other medical professionals.

We recognize the value of a customized approach. We will collaborate with you to choose the most appropriate course of action, considering your particular requirements, medical background, and general state of health. Our ultimate objective is to assist you in managing your cancer and raising your standard of living.

Immune Therapy

Our medical oncology department's staff of highly qualified oncologists uses the most recent and cutting-edge therapies to give patients the finest care possible. Immunotherapy, for example, uses the body's immune system to combat cancer.

Immunotherapy functions by locating and attacking particular proteins on the surface of cancer cells. As a result, the immune system can identify the cancer cells as foreign and launch an attack, which kills the cancer and stops it from spreading.

Several cancer forms, including melanoma, lung cancer, and kidney cancer, have shown promise for immune treatment. Our oncologists combine several immune therapy methods to give our patients the best results.

Our medical oncology departments at Medicana are outfitted with cutting-edge equipment and staffed with specialists committed to giving our patients the finest care possible. Medicana is dedicated to remaining at the forefront of medical oncology research and technology. Our staff is here to assist and mentor you through each step of the journey if you or a loved one has received a cancer diagnosis.

Palliative Care

A specific type of medical care called palliative care is aimed at giving patients who have a terrible illness, such as cancer, support and comfort. It is a comprehensive approach to care that attends to the physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs of patients and their families rather than a specific therapy for the underlying problem. Palliative care aims to enhance the quality of life, lessen symptoms and stress, and offer patients and their loved ones psychological and spiritual support.

Palliative care is offered to patients at Medicana medical oncology units as needed during their experience with the disease and is integrated into the overall approach to treatment. Together, the oncologists, nurses, and other professionals on our team deliver individualized care for each patient. Symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, decision-making aid, and communication with loved ones and other healthcare professionals may all fall under this category.

The medical oncology treatments provided at Medicana include palliative care, a crucial aspect of our dedication to giving our patients the best possible care.

We are here to support you if you or a loved one is dealing with cancer. To make an appointment with a medical oncologist, call us at +90 850 460 1010 or email us at [email protected]. Allow us to guide you through this trying process and provide the care and encouragement you need to resume living a healthy, happy life.
