Here in MCHG, we provide advanced facilities and international leading technologies and methods to treat cancer. We are aiming at releasing our patients’ pain, reducing the side effect of cancer treatment, improving the quality of their life and getting better curative effect.
Specialists of MCHG believe that one single therapy can not be suitable to every patient. In MCHG, most of the treatment programs, especially for those patients of middle or advanced stages, will use the integrative multidisciplinary approaches. You will be exposed to a great multidisciplinary system, which includes radiation, chemotherapy, intervention, surgery, Chinese medicine, etc. During your diagnosis, treatment and nursing periods, our multidisciplinary team will always here at your service.
Our main technology is “Minimally Invasive Targeted Treatment Combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Medicine”. Compared with traditional cancer therapy, minimally invasive technology is accurately targeting to the cancer cells, so it will not damage the normal functions and has very little side effect. In addition, with less pain or even no pain is also a feature of minimal invasive surgery.
List of Technologies：
Interventional Therapy is a new substitute of traditional chemotherapy, which means that a physician introduces instruments such as needles or catheters (long, thin tubes) into the body through tiny(1-2 mm) incisions in the skin. The instruments are then guided by an imaging technique called fluoroscopy to the cancer tumor. In this way, the physician can deliver cancer medicine directly to the tumor.
Cryotherapy , also known as "Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy", is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy. Practically speaking it is "extreme cold + extreme heat" cancer treatment. Generally, a minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.
Particle Knife is a new substitute of traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer Treatment Planning System (TPS), radioactive particles will be implanted into tumors. The particles which release γ-rays can continuously kill tumor and cause destruction targeting tumor cells. With time, the radiation amount would accumulate to be large enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.
Biological therapy (also called Immunotherapy) uses the body's immune system to fight cancer. The cells, antibodies, and organs of the immune system work to protect and defend the body against foreign invaders, such as bacteria or viruses. Physicians in MCHG have found that the immune system might also be able to both determine the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells in the body, and to eliminate the cancer cells.
Targeted Therapy is to research and choose medications according to different types of gene mutation. It reduces the side effect of drugs on human body. Gene Therapy is a supplementary therapy which replaces cancer genes by normal genes. It aims at the root of tumors. In MCHG, we use Targeted Gene Therapy to treat cancer from its fundamental level.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a system of medical care that developed in China over thousands of years. It looks at the interaction between mind, body and environment, and aims to prevent and cure illness and disease. MCHG applies combined treatment of TCM & minimally invasive targeted therapy, which features combined strength of two medicines and advantages of employing brand-new therapeutic system to achieve better effect and lessen side effect.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment that uses a drug, called a photosensitizer or photosensitizing agent, and a particular type of light. When photosensitizers are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, they produce a form of oxygen that kills nearby cells. Each photosensitizer is activated by light of a specific wavelength，which determines how far the light can travel into the body. Thus, doctors can use them to treat different areas of the body.
Chemotherapy is a milestone in cancer treatments. MCHG modified conventional chemotherapy with means, minimizing its side effects while maximizing the efficacy, which is believed to be a new chemical weapon to treat malignant tumor. With the advantages of reducing side effects greatly, those chemotherapies applied in the hospital are considered as green chemotherapies.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) involves applying heat to certain nerve pathways to "shut off" the transmission of pain signals to the brain. It is performed on an outpatient basis and requires only local anesthetic and mild sedation, alleviating the possible complications of open surgery and general anesthesia. It has a high success rate low complication rate.
Positron emission tomography, also called PET imaging or a PET scan, is a kind of nuclear medicine imaging. PET scan measures important body functions, such as blood flow, oxygen use, and sugar (glucose) metabolism to help doctors evaluate how well organs and tissues are functioning.
A new secret weapon to kill breast cancer cells by roasting has been widely used. It kills breast cancer cells in a very short time with high-intensity focused ultrasound. During the treatment, patients do not need anesthesia or surgery and won’t suffer any skin burn. Thermal therapy is an advanced treatment for breast cancer.
In microwave ablation, a probe will be inserted into tumors, and micro electromagnetic waves will be released to destroy and ablate the cancerous tissues directly. Targeting clearly and affecting intensely on the tumor, MWA won’t produce obvious side effects to normal tissues.
Nanoknife is a brand-new cutting-edge ablation technology for tumor treatment. It breaks the membrane of tumor cells with high voltage pulses from electrode probes, resulting in multiple irreversible nano-meter electroporated holes, which is applicable to pancreatic cancer, liver cancer and other solid tumor treatments.
125I seed implantation is a brand new technology for cancer treatment, which is called inside radiation. The principle is to precisely locate the seeds with CT guidance and B ultrasound and inject the seeds into tumor with puncture guided by imagine
