In addition to managing the treatment process, the centre’s world-renowned faculty strives to confront cancer at its root by utilising the latest technology and techniques to offer an advanced programme of early detection and cancer prevention. Common to all Units of the CCC is the access to state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
