Day Care Chemotherapy

Day Care Chemotherapy at Oncology India

Day care chemotherapy is a relatively new concept in India. Oncology India is one of the first cancer hospitals to understand its importance and one of the few where the service is available. Most patients do not even require a bed and can receive treatment on a private couch or in a common lounge in an aesthetic setting, often while reading, watching television or surfing mobile applications.

At Oncology India, patients have access to state-of-the-art infrastructure related to chemotherapy and the expertise of verified consultants. All patients are assigned a personal medical oncologist, who supervises the progress of the procedure throughout its duration, under the watch of a dedicated nurse. Other benefits are:

  • Competent and dedicated technicians and nurses
  • No overnight stay
  • Faster recovery
  • Minimal or no disruption to regular routine.
  • Economic advantages

Importance ofChemotherapy?

Oncology treatment options are decided on the type of cancer, the progression of the disease and the patient’s physiology and medical hjstory. Chemotherapy is common to almost all cancer treatments. The treatment uses special chemicals, which are mostly administered intravenously. They target, reach and kill individual cancer cells. While the initial chemotherapy may require hospitalization, follow-up chemo sessions can be standalone procedures at day care centres.

The importance of chemotherapy day care centres is due to the advances in chemotherapy and the need for timely treatment delivery. Excessive delays in getting appointments are a crucial factor in the rising popularity of chemotherapy day care. Isolating the procedure from the complexity of overall cancer management makes it simple and immensely patient-friendly.

Medical Oncology

Medical Oncology aims to treat cancer patients with the intention of curing the disease or controlling it. Patients are treated with drugs and chemicals that directly target cancer cells or re-enforce the immune system to eradicate the cells. At Oncology India, drug therapies play the central role in comprehensive cancer management. Chemotherapy is especially used to cure the cancer and prevent recurrence.

In cases that require a multi-dimensional approach, the patient is referred to our surgeon and/or radiation oncologist for optimal results. Apart from treating the disease medical oncology also focuses on enhancing the quality of life of the patient. Our medical oncologist is integral to the clinical team, which also includes pathologists and nuclear medicine professionals, which conducts periodic reviews of your treatment plan and your response to it.
