Our clinicians work alongside a multi-modality team to ensure that each patient experiences the best care possible. Our gold standard diagnostic facilities first test for the presence of the disease, and thorough follow up tests determine the type of cancer, location of the tumor, the stage, and the spread of these cells as cancer manifests differently in each individual.


A colposcopy is a simple non-surgical procedure used to examine the presence of cervical or vulvar cancer. Colposcopy is most valuable in the prevention of cancer as it also helps to detect precancerous lesions. Our gynaecological oncology team uses colposcopies to investigate any abnormalities. Tests are conducted using a multidisciplinary approach, with gynaecological oncologists collaborating closely with other specialists.

Our pathology lab is constantly upgraded to ensure that it contains the updated tools that are managed by highly qualified technicians. Our team has expertise in various areas, including hematopathology, dermatopathology, genitourinary, soft tissue tumor, gastrointestinal, liver, breast, and oncologic pathology. Thus, this helps us ensure high rates of accuracy in our test results.
