Participation in clinical trials can provide patients with access to cutting-edge therapies and contribute to the advancement of cancer treatment.
  • Multidisciplinary Care: Oncology services often involve a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals, including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, oncology nurses, social workers, nutritionists, and other specialists. This team approach ensures comprehensive and coordinated care tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
