TOP SPECIALITIES OFFERED BY MEDICLINIC CITY HOSPITAL COMPREHENSIVE CANCER CENTRE (CCC) 1. Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) 2. Breast Cancer 3. Hernia Repair • STEREOTACTIC BODY RADIOTHERAPY (SBRT) Stereotactic body radiation therapy is a form of radiotherapy used to treat extracranial benign and malignant cancers. It is chosen for patients with small, well-defined tumors who cannot tolerate surgery. It administers very high doses of radiation using several beams of various intensities aimed at different angles to precisely target the tumor. At Mediclinic City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC), the patient will have an initial consultation. The attending doctor might do some additional examinations and tests to ensure the patient is fit for the radiotherapy treatment. The doctor will discuss all the details with the patient and explain any additional procedures that might be necessary. If the patient is fit for radiotherapy, he/she will be given an appointment for the radiotherapy session. The radiation treatments are usually given as a single dose or up to five doses, once a day, depending on the type and location of the tumor and the patient's physical condition. The stereotactic body radiation therapy uses 3D imaging to target high doses of radiation to the affected area. Their radiotherapist provides individualized treatment by conforming the dose to the shape and size of the target while limiting adverse effects by sparing the surrounding healthy anatomy. Stereotactic body radiotherapy is most commonly delivered on an outpatient basis and takes 20 to 60 minutes for each treatment. After the radiotherapy, if you experience symptoms such as a temporary increase in pain or nausea, your doctor will also give you appropriate medications to relieve the symptoms. • BREAST CANCER The treatment of breast tumors depends on the type of breast cancer and if it has spread elsewhere in the body. At Mediclinic City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC), doctors from different specialties work together to treat breast cancer, including Surgeons, Medical Oncologists, and Radiation Oncologists. Their team will talk to you about the treatment options available for the type and stage of cancer you have. The attending doctor will also explain the risks and benefits of each treatment and its side effects. Depending on the site and size of the tumor, the breast size, and the patient's wishes, you may be recommended a procedure to remove the cancer tissues. There are different types of surgeries for breast cancer. The breast surgeon at Mediclinic City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC) may remove the area of cancer in a lumpectomy procedure. He may also remove the whole breast, including the breast tissue (including the skin and nipple) and the tissues covering the chest muscles, using a procedure called mastectomy. After a mastectomy, the doctor may also carry out breast reconstruction surgery. Breast surgery is often carried out in combination with other cancer treatments such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, and biological therapy. If your cancer is spread in other parts of the body, your doctor might recommend chemotherapy, a medical treatment using particular medicines to shrink or kill cancer cells. Your doctor might also recommend hormonal therapy, which blocks the cancer cells from getting the hormones they need to grow, or biological therapy that works with the body's immune system to help it fight cancer cells. Different types of radiation therapies that use high-energy rays to kill cancer cells are performed at Mediclinic City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC). Their Radiation oncologist decides the most suitable radiation therapy after discussion with the patient. • HERNIA REPAIR A hernia is an outpouching of part of an organ through a weak muscle area that usually holds it in place. There are different kinds of hernias, depending on which part of the body they occur. Some of the hernias include Inguinal hernia, Umbilical hernia, and Hiatal hernia. Not all hernias need to be repaired; however, surgery may be required to repair the weakened area in many cases. Surgical hernia repair may be recommended if the hernia is painful or strangulated. If the hernia does not require surgery straightaway, your surgeon may recommend watchful waiting or a device called a truss to hold tissues in place. The surgeons at Mediclinic City Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC), Dubai, perform both laparoscopic and open surgery. If your doctor recommends laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon will make two or three tiny cuts near the hernia and reach it with long, thin tools, including a laparoscope that helps visualize the hernia on the screen in the operation theatre. In open surgery, the surgeon usually makes one longer incision over the hernia and opens the skin. You will undergo some tests to ensure you are fit for the surgery. The doctor will then give you a date for the surgical procedure. On the day of the operation, the anesthetist will give you anesthesia to help you not feel any pain. The surgeon will then start the procedure by making one or more incisions and reach the hernia to push the protruding tissue back into its place. The surgeon will then repair the weak muscle layer. A piece of mesh material will be sewn over the weak area to strengthen it. The surgeon will then close the cuts with stitches or staples, and you will be moved to an area where you will be watched until the anesthesia wears off. Once your surgeon feels you are stable post-surgery, you will be able to go home and return for regular follow-ups in the outpatient clinic.
