The term oncology literally means a branch of science that deals with tumours and cancers. The word “onco” means bulk, mass, or tumor while “-logy” means study.
Our oncology center is concerned with comprehensive care comprising of preventive measures, early diagnosis, apt therapy (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy and other modalities), and regular follow-up of cancer patients after successful treatment and palliative care of patients with terminal malignancies.
Our oncologists often consider the multi disciplinary care of cancer patients, which may involve physiotherapy, counseling, clinical genetics, to name but a few. As cancer therapy becomes more coordinated, early identification of recurrence will often lead to better survival and quality of life.
Pain is inevitable, they say- Enduring it is easier said than done. It is an excruciating feeling which needs either an exceptional degree of fortitude or an alleviating hand. Medical science has always pursued this incessant battle against many forms of pain. Of joint pains, it is said only a sufferer of arthritis can understand. When the sufferer can no longer stretch this limit, joint replacement surgery is the only hope.
