Cancer is an illness best fought with a specific battle plan for each individual case. Time is of the essence when it comes to the treatment of cancer and understanding this is of utmost importance for treatment. At Millennium, we first organize the staging process with lab testing; genomic studies; imaging processes; and only then do we guide you through the a personally tailored treatment plan including any or all of our pillars of management including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or immunotherapy in an order that is best for the patient based on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines and extensive confirmed studies.
We are the first to provide immunotherapy to our patients. Immunotherapy harnesses the body's own immune system to fight off cancer. It is a more natural method of destroying the cancer cells in the patient. Our body naturally makes antibodies which we harness and use to go against specific cells, in this case cancer cells. Immunotherapy is useful against many types of cancer and eases the patient's illness, elongating life and providing a better quality of life. We use two types of immunotherapy; the first kind is by basic stimulation of the immune system. The second is by introduction of man-made immune system proteins into the body that help the natural immune proteins attack the cancer cells.
Patients are treated in Millennium Cancer Centre's dedicated luxurious chemotherapy/immunotherapy outpatient suites. Each suite is equipped with wifi, air conditioning, and comfortable recliners and beds.
