"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, "I'm possible!"
WHO WE ARE
At Cape Oncology, we aim to provide holistic care for patients with cancer. We are passionate about providing integrated thorough care and support throughout your cancer journey. Beyond our goal to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes with the latest medical technology, we at Cape Oncology also understand the psychological and emotional burden of a cancer diagnosis for patients and their families. With our patient centred approach to care, as a team, we aim to support our patients as comprehensively as possible.
Working closely with a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, medical physicists, radiotherapists, oncology sisters, as well as social workers, dieticians and physiotherapists under one roof, at Christiaan Barnard Memorial Hospital in Cape Town, we emphasise a patient centred approach to care.
While breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among South African women, when detected early, the success rate for treatment is very high.
TARGETED CANCER THERAPY
By targeting cancer's specific genes, proteins or environment in which it seems to grow and survive, targeted drug therapy can stop the growth and spread of cancer cells.
Using this sophisticated form of radiotherapy, tumours inside the body can be targeted with high doses of radiation without damaging surrounding tissues.
