A Team Effort
We have a unified approach to cancer care, with teams of doctors who work together to guide each patient through diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. We have a team devoted to diagnosing and treating breast cancer, G-I and colorectal cancer, and so on. These teams have a depth and breadth of experience that is unsurpassed. Using this approach, the treatment plans reflect the combined expertise of many doctors — surgical oncologist, medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists. This approach also ensures that patients who need several different therapies to treat their cancer will receive the ideal combination.
Getting the Correct Diagnosis
Our radiologists use advanced imaging technology to detect cancer. In addition to MRI and CT, our radiologists offer advanced imaging technologies.
Nepal Cancer Hospital and Research Center pathologists are involved in patient management right from the beginning. They analyze tumor samples to determine a precise diagnosis and the extent of disease (called staging), even if this information has been collected and reviewed through email. Reports from our pathologists are essential to deciding the best course of treatment. In addition we have Frozen Section Biopsy, which allows tissues removed during surgery to be rapidly evaluated by our pathologists, who can then communicate directly with surgeons in the operating room via audio links so that mode of surgery and the extent of surgery can be decided instantly. Increasingly, new technology enables our pathologists to predict a tumor's aggressiveness or its response to certain forms of therapy, as well as to identify genetic abnormalities in some tumors, which can then direct the course of treatment.
Unparalleled Surgical Oncology Expertise
Recent studies have shown that, for many cancers, patients have fewer complications if they have surgery at a hospital that performs high volumes of these operations and if the surgery is performed by a surgeon with expertise in the procedure. You can be sure that our surgeons are among the most experienced cancer surgeons in Nepal.
Our surgeons are also performing surgical procedures to reconstruct the breast, colon, tongue and mouth, and the rectum following cancer surgery and new techniques to spare organs and preserve function.
Best Medical Oncologists in Nepal
It is often a medical oncologist who follows a patient through the course of treatment and during recovery, to ensure a continuum of care. Our medical oncologists are upto date in technology, new chemotherapy drugs that are safer and more effective than standard therapies. They can also help patients manage the side effects of chemotherapy, such as nausea and fatigue, so that patients can lead relatively normal lives while receiving chemotherapy. Increasingly, our medical oncologists employ sophisticated technologies, such as immunotherapies or vaccines, often in combination with chemotherapy, to more effectively treat cancer.
Leaders in Radiation Therapy in Nepal
At NCH & RC we are bringing the most advanced radiation equipment called Linac Rapid Arc. This will revolutionize the traditional radiotherapy treatment mode that is being followed in Nepal. We have the most experienced Radiation Oncologist in the country who have more than 10 years experience in different modes of radiation treatment.
Unparallel Nursing and Supportive Care
Our nurses work together with doctors and are an essential part of the healthcare team. Their support, encouragement, and deep sense of caring bring tremendous comfort to our patients and their loved ones. Our specially trained oncology nurses care for patients before, during, and after surgery; educate patients about what to expect when they go home from the hospital. They also communicate with family members to address their needs and concerns. To help ensure a continuum of care, patients are typically cared for by the same nurses throughout their stay.
For some patients, the psychological effects of cancer can be overwhelming. NCH & RC provides specially trained psychiatrists and psychologists who can help cancer patients deal with the stress, anxiety, and depression that can accompany a diagnosis of cancer and its treatment. Easing patients' distress can greatly improve the quality of their lives. Our social workers who are also cancer survivors also help to ensure that patients get emotional support as well as correct information about treatment and support. They conduct a number of individual, family, and group counseling support groups both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. After treatment, patients can also join these groups so that they can provide help to others.
