Services offered at Medcare Hospital Sharjah encompass the latest in cancer treatment modalities including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and surgical oncology. Chemotherapy utilises powerful medications to eliminate rapidly growing cancer cells, while immunotherapy boosts the body’s immune system to fight cancer. Targeted therapy aims at specific molecules involved in the growth, progression, and spread of cancer cells, sparing normal cells and minimising side effects.


Surgical oncology at Medcare involves the removal of tumours and cancerous tissues, with skilled oncologists in diagnosing cancer and determining its spread. This specialisation is crucial for many cancer treatment plans.

“It’s a beacon of hope that lights the path to recovery. To those facing uncertainty, remember, resilience is your super power. Every step forward is a testament to your courage.”
