UHS department of Medical Oncology uses medical interventions for the treatment of Cancer in a very systematic way. Our specialist doctors with experience spanning across two decades and more ensure that the medicine is made available to the specific site in the body following a specific path. This process reduces the chances of painful chemotherapies and other invasive procedures. While the medicines could be taken at home some of the medicines need to be administered in our Specialists Clinic.
