Integrated commitment for children (Personalized Integrated Treatment)
  • On many occasions, a multidisciplinary approach needs to be facilitated for children and teenage cancer patients. Therefore, the Pediatric Cancer Center designs the entire treatment process with close cooperation of the related departments from the first stage of treatment to establish a treatment plan. Maintaining a firm cooperation system with the Radiation Oncology Department to conduct radiotherapy and receiving help from the Anesthesia Department, proton treatments are performed in the safest manner possible by adopting the most effective regimen with the lowest risk of side effects.
