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 immunotherapy.
Mahatma Gandhi Cancer Hospital & Research Institute has a team of highly qualified, experienced, and dedicated medical oncologists who offer all these services to patients. Backed by a team of highly trained nursing staff in 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.
The medical oncology department is also actively involved in research and academic activities, including a successful DNB Medical Oncology program.
