Medical Oncology

The field of medical oncology deals with systemic treatment of cancer. Systemic treatment refers to older treatment modalities like chemotherapy as well as newer modalities like targeted therapy and the cutting-edge of cancer treatment called immunotherapy.

Mahatma Gandhi Cancer Hospital has a team of highly experienced and dedicated medical oncologists who offer all these services to the patients. Backed by a team of highly trained nursing staff adept at handling chemotherapy, the unit runs a robust day-care and in-patient chemotherapy ward to take care of our high volumes of chemotherapy.

Delivery of chemotherapy is made easier to our patients by use of advanced vascular access techniques like PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) line, Chemo-port, Hickman line etc.
