Day care cancer centre was inaugurated at Canadian Specialist Hospital, Dubai.
The centre, which has been opened in collaboration with India’s leading oncology centre, the Max Health Institute (MHIL), will provide treatment for a variety of adult and paediatric cancers such as breast, lung, liver, colon, colorectal, stomach, prostate, brain, leukaemia, cervix, kidney, pancreas, oesophagus, ovarian sarcomas and other common and rare cancers, among Emiratis, residents and medical tourists. The centre will soon expand to include surgical oncology services.
Dr Prasanta Das, oncologist from MHIL, who is heading the centre said : “The day care oncology centre requires patients to be in hospital for a short period which could stretch from 4-6 hours and once their treatment is completed they are discharged”.
“Many are able to go back and report to work, while many are happy to be with their families in instead of being admitted long term for treatment. This helps patients psychologically and allows them to remain productive through the course of the treatment,” he added.
