Oncology and cancer treatment
The Department of Medical Oncology provides the use of chemotherapy in the treatment of many types of cancers, such as brain tumors, lung tumors, prostate, large intestine, rectum, stomach, pancreas, breast, liver, gallbladder, head, neck, kidney, and gynecological cancers.
Chemotherapy can be applied or the tumor can be eliminated with pharmacotherapy by means of medication that is applied from a vein, from the hip muscle, from the mouth, or from the inside of the abdomen.
The important point of chemotherapy is to protect the patient from the side effects of chemotherapy while the active treatment is applied, in addition to this target-oriented therapies and immunotherapy are applied.
The Department of Medical Oncology at Medicol Hospitals provides the application of chemotherapy by specialized oncologists in the field to provide patient protection in chemotherapy, prevent the spread of cancer, slow the spread of cancer, and clean up the remaining tumors after surgeries and radiotherapy.
High temperature chemotherapy during the operation
Intraoperative hyperthermic chemotherapy is hot chemotherapy that is applied directly to the abdomen during surgery.
Unlike systemic chemotherapy which is circulated throughout the body, intraoperative hyperthermic chemotherapy only penetrates the cancer cells directly into the abdomen. With this method, higher doses of chemotherapy can be applied, and heating/raising the temperature of the solution increases the rate of absorption of chemotherapy drugs into the cancer cells after surgery, and provides elimination of residual cancer cells in microscopic dimensions in the abdomen.
