Medical oncology deals with the use of systemic medications aimed at cancer cell killing and control. The department of Medical Oncology has specialist consultants with interest in the management of solid tumors as well as pediatric (childhood) cancers. The medical oncology team in TMC are experts in the use of systemic treatment including chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, as well as the latest biological and targeted treatments for solid tumors.

In-house treatment protocols are being set at par with international standards and such treatment algorithms will be constantly updated based on the latest research evidence. The medical oncology team aims to provide a comprehensive approach to cancer care with emphasis on careful personalised monitoring of patients during and after treatment. The department works very closely with other specialist departments in the hospital to ensure the highest standards of cancer care for all patients.

A fully equipped medical daycare ward will ensure a supportive and compassionate environment during the patient’s short stay in the hospital whilst undergoing chemotherapy treatment without the need for inpatient admissions.

Emphasis will also be placed on translational research, Phase I/II clinical trials, drug development including the development of gene therapy for cancer cure.
