CARDIO ONCOLOGY CLINIC
The incidence and prevalence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases rise simultaneously. Due to the increasing number of long-term cancer survivors and the ageing of the population, the number of patients presenting oncologic and cardiologic complications is increasing.
Accordingly, there is a rapidly growing need for a comprehensive and proficiency management of patients with cancer who suffered cardiac problems due to the use of chemotherapies. In addition, as novel and emerging cancer therapies are improving outcomes and survival rates, these therapies may have cardiovascular side effects that both impede continued treatment of the cancer and cause morbidity or mortality.
At our Cardio Oncology clinic we closely monitor various aspects of heart health in cancer patients at risk providing state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic tests.
Our cardio oncology specialists begin treatment when appropriate using the best therapies available allowing continuation and completion of cancer treatment which is vital for survival.
