The field of medical oncology deals with the 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 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 for our patients by the use of advanced vascular access techniques like PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) lines, Chemo-Port, Hickman lines, etc.
