Head and neck oncologyHead and neck cancers are tumours that affect the mouth, throat, nasal cavity, eyes, ears and other regions of the head and neck. These cancers are majorly caused by alcohol and tobacco consumption. The treatment protocols are determined by factors like type, size and stage of cancer.

It offers support on ways to manage physical symptoms and pain associated with the terminal illness. Our care team compassionately provides emotional, mental and spiritual guidance according to your needs and preference.
Treatments for cancer
Surgrical oncologySurgical oncology is the use of surgery to remove cancers and surrounding tissues as a line of treatment. Surgery is offered for the treatment of cancers like gynaecological cancers, breast cancers, gastrointestinal cancers, and head and neck tumours.
ChemotherapyChemotherapy is the use of medical drugs to kill cancer cells and control its spread in the body. Chemotherapy is given as intravenous (IV) infusion through a drip or oral tablets. We offer tailored precision medicine and protocols at our dedicated state-of-the-art chemo daycare unit.
Targeted therapyTargeted therapy involves the use of medicinal drugs to interfere with the growth of cancer cells in the body. This treatment stops the spread of cancer by targeting and attacking specific genes and proteins that are associated with cancer growth.
ImmunotherapyWe provide personalised immunotherapy as a treatment alternative for a wide range of cancers. Our medical oncologists tailor your treatments to your unique symptoms and prescribe drugs to help boost your immune system to fight cancer cells. We use this treatment option in combination with other treatments to help preserve and maintain your quality of life.
