  • Providing cancer treatments and care of the highest level to subjects with Hematological and Oncological disorders, the Pediatric Oncology department offers treatments to patients strictly below the age of 18 years. By providing assessment, diagnosis, treatment plans and surgical procedures, our team of pediatric oncologists work closely together to determine the best course of action for every patient while taking into account their diagnosis, detailed medical history and age.

    The department’s approach is different from other oncology departments as it often refers patients to other departments and clinics within the hospital, such as the Cardiopulmonary division, the Medical Imaging branch or the hospital’s laboratories. The physicians will also make direct admissions for pediatric inpatient care, from the clinic to the pediatric ward.

  • Cancer treatments can often be painful and highly aggressive. This is where Palliative Care comes in. Helping patients ease into their treatment programs and deal with the painful side-effects of cancer surgeries and medical procedures, Palliative Care is administered in parallel with other cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, to relieve the pain and improve the patient’s mental health and quality of life during their battle with cancer.

    Cancer therapy is complicated on an emotional and physical level for the patient, which is why Palliative Care is commonly considered as an integral part of the treatment plans for serious diseases and life-threatening illnesses.

    Palliative Care in no way acts as a replacement for primary treatment, but rather works in conjunction with medical therapies the patient already receiving to alleviate pain and control the symptoms throughout the cancer journey.

  • The American Hospital Dubai provides a comprehensive list of cancer support services for cancer patients, their families and loved ones, such as support groups, lodging assistance, nutritional care and dietary plans, and physical and emotional therapies.
