Medical oncology is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancers.
The oncologist presents each case at a multidisciplinary meeting - known as the tumour board - in order to determine the best diagnosis and treatment plan. The indications and interactions between surgery, systemic treatments and radiotherapy are different for each patient. The dose, the dosing schedule and the combination of individual agents depend on the patient’s condition and the nature of the disease.
Cancer drugs are administered orally or given as an injection or drip (infusion). Intravenous infusions require either outpatient treatment (lasting a few hours) or hospital treatment (lasting from two to several days). Chemotherapy can cause adverse effects. Research and practice help us to limit these side effects to a minimum.

Medical hypnosis in oncology
The patient is the leading active partner in the care team. The oncology department at Clinique de Genolier offers this new treatment approach as part of its support for cancer patients.
Effective and scientifically recognised, medical hypnosis is a short (three to 10 sessions), solution-oriented psychotherapy that gives patients personalised tools to learn how to cope and mobilise resources in finding solutions to their daily problems.
