In the Department we have created the best conditions to ensure the maximum comfort for our patients.

Besides the main process of chemotherapy, Department of Oncology performs comprehensive diagnostics of the patients with malignant tumors, processes of tactic development for treatment and further control. All patients’ data are discussed on oncological multidisciplinary meetings - Tumor Board, and more complicated cases have to be considered in the format of tele-conference with European partners.
