The medical oncology department primarily treats cancer using drugs. These treatments can be curative, or to alleviate symptoms to make the illness more bearable.
What can we do for you?
We strive to increase the odds of recovery or longer life using combination treatments.
- We offer treatment with chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormone therapy. These treatments are usually given in combination with surgery or radiation. For all treatments with drugs, your medical oncologist will be your practicing physician and contact point.
- Our medical oncologists conduct research into cancer drugs. Sometimes this involves drugs that have never been given to people before, or medication that is compared to the standard treatment in a large-scale trial.
Treatment with cancer drugs is usually given in combination with surgery or radiation. Medical oncologists closely collaborate with a multidisciplinary team.
