Tumour Board

A tumour board is essential for making any cancer hospital’s approach towards treatment of cancer unambiguous, specific and effective. At Sterling Cancer Hospital, a tumour board consists of medical professionals from all areas of expertise in cancer.   A typical tumour board consists of surgeons, oncologists, and all other specialties which are involved in the patient’s case.

At Sterling Cancer Hospitals, it is our highest priority to ensure the highest care for our patients so that they can beat cancer.  We have a highly specialized team of physicians who comprise the tumour board. Each cancer case is reviewed by the concerned tumour board, which comprises of senior consultants from various disciplines of diagnostic and therapeutic oncology. 

The experts share and exchange views which are based on the findings of the principal consultant. In case of controversial or complicated cases, a consensus is arrived at before the patient can proceed for the designated treatment.

The tumour board at Sterling Hospitals helps the patient obtain customized anti-cancer treatment as planned by the multidisciplinary faculty. We also try and involve the patient’s family before the therapy is initiated.  Due to the in-depth opinion obtained by various oncologists and other tumour board members, the patient is the ultimate beneficiary.
