Oncology is the branch of medicine that deals with cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. An oncologist, or cancer specialist, is a medical professional who specialises in cancer treatment.
At Gleneagles Hospitals, customised cancer treatment includes personalised care from the entire medical team of professionals including an oncology doctor, nurses, and counsellors. This provides a complete system to provide a qualified team of professionals to help aid and alleviate the process.
Equipped with advanced technology, the qualified team of clinical oncologists has a wide medical background in surgical, radiation, haematological (blood) and paediatric (childhood) oncology to enhance the quality of patients' lives.
Comprehensive cancer treatments
We offer an extensive range of cancer treatments to cater to the unique needs of our patients, including:
Cancer screening services are critical for early detection and prevention. Identifying cancer at an early stage, when it is most likely treatable, significantly increases the chances of successful management. Do speak to your doctor to determine what is suitable for you based on your risk for cancer. Learn more here.
The medical oncology team at Gleneagles Hospitals specialises in managing cancer using medications such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.
Paediatric oncology is a medical discipline that revolves around the research and treatment of different cancers in children and young adults. Besides administering treatment, paediatric oncologists possess specific knowledge to help children understand, manage, and navigate their cancer diagnosis.
Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, uses high doses of radiation to destroy cancer cells and reduce the size of tumours while minimising effects to the surrounding healthy tissues around the tumour, thus enhancing its outcome.
Palliative care is specialised care aimed at improving the quality of life of patients with serious or life-threatening diseases, such as cancer. The aim is to prevent or treat the disease's symptoms and side effects, as well as any associated psychological, social, and spiritual issues, as early as possible. Learn more here .
