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, 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 — Medical Oncologists, Surgical Oncologist, Radiologists, Radiation Oncologists, Pathologists and Others. 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 technologies to detect cancer. In addition to MRI and CT, our radiologists offer advanced imaging technologies.
Our Pathologists are involved in patient management right from the beginning. They analyze tumor samples to determine a precise diagnosis and the extent of disease ( staging). Reports from the pathologists are essential in deciding the best course of treatment. We are one of the hospitals to perform regular 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 so that mode of surgery and the extent of surgery can be decided instantly. Increasingly, new technologies enable our pathologists to predict a tumor’s aggressiveness and 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 their surgery done at a hospital that performs high volumes of these surgeries and 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 and preserve functions of the Breast, Colon, Tongue, Mouth, Rectum and many others.
Best Medical Oncologists in Nepal
It is often a Medical Oncologist who follows a patient through the course of their treatment and during recovery to ensure a continuum of care. Our Medical Oncologists are up to date in latest technologies and chemotherapy drugs that are safer and more effective than common therapies. They also help patients in managing 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, vaccines, and others in combination with chemotherapy to treat cancer more effectively.
Leaders in Radiation Therapy in Nepal
At NCHRC we have the most advanced radiation equipment called Linac True Beam-II with Rapid Arc. This has revolutionized the traditional radiotherapy treatment mode that was being followed in Nepal. We are proud to have the most experienced Radiation Oncologists in the country who have more than decades experience in different modes of radiation treatment.
Unparalleled Nursing and Supportive Care
Our nurses and doctors work together as a part of the healthcare team to deliver the best course of treatment. The support, encouragement and deep sense of caring provided by our nurses bring tremendous comfort to our patients and their loved ones. Our specially trained Oncology nurses provide care for patients not only during the treatment but also after their discharge. Also they 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 treatment.
For patients & their care givers, the psychological effects of cancer can be overwhelming. NCHRC provides specially trained psychiatrists and psychologists who can help cancer patients deal with the stress, anxiety, and depression that may accompany cancer diagnosis and its treatment. Easing patients’ distress can greatly improve the quality of their lives.
We also have a group of social volunteers who are also cancer survivors who help to ensure that patients get emotional support as well as information and experience about their cancer journey. They conduct a number of individual, family, and group counseling sessions both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Interested patients can also join these groups and help each other.
