Most people know that Oncology is a medical specialty that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of malignant types of cancer such as breast, prostate, ovarian, colon, lung, brain tumors, leukemia and lymphoma. Most hospitals that have the department of oncology tend to focus on three major subspecialties: medical, surgical, and radiation.
Medical oncology: This approach treats cancer using chemotherapy or other medications, such as targeted therapy or immunotherapy.
Surgical oncology: This treatment removes the tumor and the nearby tissue during surgery.
Radiation oncology: This approach treats cancer using focused, high-energy radiation waves to kill cancer cells.
At FlyMedi, we partner with hospitals who have oncologists that believe that to best treat the disease, adequate care must first be given to a patient. This means these oncologists do not see you as a patient, but as part of their family. To make sure that you get adequate care, customized treatment programs are developed based on the type and stage of cancer.
