Cancer is not just one disease. There are more than 200 distinct types of cancer that have been identified. Each case of cancer requires a different approach based on the type of cancer as well as the stage of advancement. Cancer treatment is done by a multidisciplinary team of doctors who are competent and trained to treat every type of cancer. They specialise in every possible sub-specialty of cancer treatment such as
• Radiation Oncology
• Medical Oncology
• Surgical Oncology
• Head & Neck Surgery
• Neuro Onco Surgery
• Musculo Skeletal Oncology
• Hemato Oncology
• Pediatric Hemato Oncology
In American Oncology Institute, the team of Doctors are supported by an equally competent team consisting off well trained nurses, qualified dosimetrists, medical physicists and other support staff. Each nurse at our cancer treatment centre is certified in oncology nursing and have pursued intensive training beyond certification requirements.
Our expert team of physicists and dosimetrists ensure complete safety while performing the radiation therapies with highly sophisticated equipment and computers. Dosimetrists adequately supervise the treatment implementation by making necessary adaptations to ensure that the treatment plan is executed as designed.
The team of well qualified medical physicists ensure that all the technical aspects of radiotherapy delivery are effectively administered. These include quality assurance of equipment, delivering radiation, and efficacy of the radiation plans that define the patient’s treatment. Our cancer treatment planning is done in a centralized program centre under supervision and guidance of a team based out of the United States.
