FAQ: Type of Treatments
What types of treatment do you do?
Each patient is assessed on an individual basis using the Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary team approach. A wide range of state-of -the-art treatment options are available in the form of surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, or combinations of these and other therapies. Experts here focus only on cancer and are renowned for their ability to treat uncommon or rare cancers as well as common cancers. Curing the patient is our ultimate goal.
