We understand how hard it can be to choose a hospital for cancer treatment. You’ve just received life-changing news, and now you have to decide how to handle it. Here are some of the reasons why TMUH is your best hope for cancer care.
First, conventional treatments attack the disease itself (Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, Surgical oncology). At the same time, evidence-supported therapies help combat cancer-related side effects (Oncology rehabilitation Spiritual support, Nutrition therapy, Symptoms treated, Acupuncture).
A multidisciplinary team and manager team will provide personalized medicine and design the easiest and most comfortable path for the entire treatment plan.
To help patients reduce treatment delays or interruptions and get the most out of life.

Do you or your loved ones suffer from pain caused by cancer that has spread to the bones?
If radiation therapy does not work for you, ExAblate, a brand new technology which combines Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) guidance and high intensity focused ultrasound, may be an effective alternative for pain palliation of bone metastases.
Among all the pains caused by diseases, the pain caused by cancer is the most difficult to be managed, especially the pain caused by bone metastasis which is so unbearable as if there were a knife sticking in the body. Almost no single treatment can result in quick and effective pain palliation. In general, treatment for pain caused by cancer is done in the following two ways:
1. For the disease itself, to use medical treatments such as chemotherapy/radiotherapy or surgery to kill cancer cells to achieve the goal of having the tumor under control; and
2. For occurrence of pain, to use treatments such as painkillers/palliative medicine or neurosurgery to control the feelings of pain to achieve the goal of pain palliation.
When speaking with an Oncology Information Specialist, it will be helpful to provide the following information:
This may include a written history from your doctor, details about your diagnosis, results from any tests or scans you’ve had recently, and pathology slides or imaging results, if available.
