Multidisciplinary Treatment

Multidisciplinary treatment refers to the treatment approach that involves creating a team consisting of several doctors and other healthcare professionals who are experts in various specialities to provide a holistic treatment plan for the patient. Treatment plans are made after a detailed discussion with our medical oncologists and radiation oncologist so that each patient receives the right approach.

Cancer is a very daunting illness that does not have just one treatment method but can be kept at bay using a combination of treatments. And as new treatment methods arise every day, cancer does not have a 'one size fits all' type of treatment. Each treatment plan depends on the patient, their medical conditions, the effects of cancer on them and the ways their bodies have been fighting said illness.

A more holistic approach is needed. That is where multidisciplinary treatment comes in. Having an expert team of highly skilled medical and radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, physical therapists, radiologists and nurses weighing in their opinion and coming up with a combined treatment plan yields a higher benefit for the patient and has a greater chance of eradicating cancer.

Veritas focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. By enabling the patient to receive the best care possible through various tried and tested means, we can ensure their health, safety and comfort as they battle this disease. Our expert team of healthcare professionals are here to guide you through your cancer journey to make your time with us as stress-free as possible. Our goal here is to provide our patients with the best available treatment while ascertaining that they maintain their quality of life and empowering them by giving them their autonomy back to choose their preferred method of treatment. Our multidisciplinary team (MDT) will analyse the patient's condition and formulate a plan of action which we will then explain to them in detail and give them their best options. Our focus is to make our patients feel heard and comforted during this stressful and strenuous period of their life.

Depending on the type of cancer, the MDT will have some or all of the following healthcare professionals assisting them:

  • Medical oncologist - An oncologist who specialises in treating cancer through chemotherapy and other drug-related treatments.
  • Radiation/clinical oncologist - An oncologist who specialises in treating cancer through radiotherapy.
  • Surgeons - A doctor who specialises in treating cancer through surgery.
  • Pathologist - A doctor who specialises in examining bodies and body tissues.
  • Physical therapist - A trained professional who helps improve movement and manage pain.
  • Radiologist - A doctor who specialises in reading x-rays and other diagnostic imaging.
  • Nurse - An experienced nurse who specialises in taking care of cancer patients.

An MDT can even include more people depending on the patient’s needs and the type of cancer.

A multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer has yielded far better results than an individual treatment method. It is an effective strategy to provide the patient with a fighting chance against cancer.
