Advantages of Remote Consultation
1. Save time and money. Our remote consultation offers patients access to the expertise of international authoritative oncologists without the expense of travel. Patients can stay at home to communicate with well-known oncologists (“face to face”) in real time, which helps patients make the right decisions about their health.
2. Get to know more cutting-edge anticancer technologies except for surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. With advances in medical technology, cancer treatment is no longer confined to surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Focusing on cancer treatment, MCHG has introduced cutting-edge anticancer therapies like interventional therapy, nanoknife, cryotherapy, etc. Patients are able to have in-depth knowledge about cutting-edge anticancer technologies during the consultation
3. Get more treatment options. In the Philippines, surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are still the principle methods of treating cancer. In MCHG, we offer more advanced anticancer treatment-Minimally Invasive Therapy, which has the advantages of small trauma, few side effects, good efficacy and quick recovery, etc. For the past decades, minimally invasive therapy has successfully helped numerous Filipino cancer patients prolong their survival time and improve their living quality.
4. Avoid misdiagnosis and missed diagnosis. The multidisciplinary team in MCHG is composed of experts from different department. The joint remote consultation makes sure that every cancer patient gets a comprehensive diagnostic analysis and effectively avoids possible mistakes of single doctor consultation.
*Surgery, in addition to the appropriate chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are effective in treating early cancer, but certain patients in late stage of cancer may not be tolerate surgery well as they can be relatively weak. A combination of carefully planned minimally invasive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the side effects and discomfort of treatment and may help patient get better efficacy.
