Drugs are used in chemotherapy, a type of cancer treatment, to destroy cancer cells. It functions by preventing the growth and division of the cancer cells, which ultimately results 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 giving our patients the most cutting-edge and efficient chemotherapy treatments. Depending on the specific requirements and medical background of each patient, 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 and pleasant setting where they can get treatments in a secure and encouraging environment. To assist patients and their families in coping with the psychological and physical side effects of chemotherapy, 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 they need to manage their cancer journey and get the greatest results.
A type of cancer treatment known as targeted therapy tries to attack cancer cells only while causing the least amount of damage to healthy cells. Targeted therapy is created to specifically target certain genetic abnormalities or proteins that are involved in cancer growth and progression, as opposed to conventional chemotherapy, which affects both cancerous and healthy cells. As a result, the medication is more targeted, more successful, and has fewer side effects.
We employ the most recent targeted therapy therapies in our medical oncology departments, 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 are able to customise treatment programs and produce remarkably excellent outcomes by utilizing 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 cutting-edge 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.
A type of cancer treatment called hormonal therapy tackles hormones and the ways in which they aid cancer cells in proliferating and growing. This sort of treatment functions by preventing the hormones from being produced or by preventing the receptors that 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. In order 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 customised approach and will collaborate with you to choose the most appropriate course of action, taking into account 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.
Our staff of highly qualified oncologists uses the most recent and cutting-edge therapies in our medical oncology departments to give patients the finest care possible. Immunotherapy is one such treatment that uses the body's own immune system to combat cancer.
Immunotherapy functions by locating and attacking particular proteins that are present on the surface of cancer cells. As a result, the immune system is able to identify the cancer cells as foreign and launch an attack, which kills the cancer and stops it from spreading.
A number of cancer forms, including melanoma, lung cancer, kidney cancer, and others, have shown promise for immune treatment. In order to give our patients the best results, our oncologists combine several immune therapy methods.
Our medical oncology departments at Medicana are outfitted with cutting-edge equipment and staffed with specialists who are 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.
A specific type of medical care called palliative care is aimed at giving patients who have a terrible illness, such 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 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 care that is individualized 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, which is a crucial aspect of our dedication to giving our patients the best possible care.
