Prevention, diagnosis and world class treatment for cancer patients with survival rates and other outcomes metrics that are comparable with leading cancer centers in the US, Western Europe and Japan.
The center operates under the Total Cancer Care concept, which is aimed at improving long-term survival rate whilst providing the highest quality of life for patients. Total Cancer Care puts great emphasis on cancer prevention, identifying risk factors and providing effective diagnosis and treatment. The center’s specialized pathologists, oncologists, radiologists, and nurses are on hand to provide patients with the following services:
Ten years ago, 53 year old Surachet was diagnosed with, and began receiving treatment for, gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Eight years later, after the cancer returned, he sought medical advice from Dr. Surachat Chakrapee-Sirisuk, a Medical Oncologist at Wattanosoth Cancer Hospital. A second cancer was discovered, and Surachet is now receiving chemotherapy for both cancers.
31 year old Maria, an expat living and working in Thailand, was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. She sought advice on treatment options from Dr. Chatchai Koowattanapaisan, a Medical Oncologist at Wattanosoth Cancer Hospital. One year later, Maria considers herself cancer-free.
A cutting-edge imaging technique for the diagnosis of cancerous tumors. A combination of the PET scan and CT scan, the PET/CT is capable of detecting both physiologic abnormalities and cancerous cell abnormalities at the molecular level. This allows for more efficient and accurate treatment, while also helps doctors determine how the cancer is responding to treatment. If a recurrence is detected at an early stage, the doctor can act before the cancer spreads.
The Edge has the highest dose rate in the industry which coupled with the ability to localize and target previous inoperable tumors makes this a critical addition to our non-invasive cancer treatment arsenal.
