Multidisciplinary Clinics (MDCC)

jaslok hospital

The Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic (MDCC) is a specialised department within Jaslok Hospital that provides comprehensive cancer care to patients. The clinic is staffed by a team of highly skilled and experienced healthcare professionals, including oncologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, nurses, social workers, and other support staff. 

The clinic deals with all types of cancers, including breast cancer, prostate cancer and cancers of the neck and hand.

The primary goal of the Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic is to provide coordinated care to patients with cancer, with a focus on improving patient outcomes and quality of life.

The MDCC begins treatment with a comprehensive evaluation of each patient's condition. This evaluation includes a physical examination, medical history review, and a detailed assessment of the patient's symptoms. Diagnostic tests such as imaging, blood tests, or biopsies may also be performed to help determine the type and stage of cancer.

Once a diagnosis is made, the MDCC team works with each patient to develop an individualised treatment plan. Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy. The clinic uses state-of-the-art technologies and facilities to provide all these treatments. 

Support and rehabilitation are important components of cancer treatment. The MDCC team, therefore, provides pain management, nutrition counselling, physical therapy, and other services designed to help patients manage the side effects of treatment and improve their overall quality of life.

The MDCC recognizes the importance of psychosocial support in cancer care. The clinic has social workers and counsellors who provide emotional support and counselling to patients and their families. They also provide education and resources to help patients and families cope with the emotional and psychological impact of cancer.

The main highlight of the Multidisciplinary Cancer Clinic is its multidisciplinary approach. The team works closely with other departments, such as the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, to provide coordinated care to patients. 

The MDCC also strongly believes in providing a compassionate and comfortable environment to patients and their families. It works on a patient-centred approach and consults with patients every step of the way. 

Apart from providing clinical treatments, MDCC also conducts research and participates in clinical trials to advance the understanding and treatment of cancer. It also provides education and outreach to healthcare professionals and the wider community through educational seminars, conferences, or training programs. Improving patient outcomes and preventing cancer is the main aim of this clinic.
