Follow Up Program
After our functional oncology treatments, the best possible way and the part that integrates the management of cancer is: monitoring.
At our clinic, we offer a “Follow Up Program” that is a series of steps followed by the patient and the medical team. The most important part of our program is constant communication between the patient and their doctor.
This step will help our medical team take better decisions regarding treatment, the well-being of the patient, adjustments that need to be made, modifications or changes in the post discharge management.
To ensure the progress and improvement of our patients we use a series of standard gold tests to help measure the results. Before applying the tests, we use a mechanic called: Dose-response. Once our specialists have treated the patient with a specific therapy, they must wait an established amount of time to see the results, measure them and know what type of test they must apply.
*The dynamic of our “Dose-response” mechanic is explained to each patient, before we do their treatment.
The standard gold tests are the following:
- Imaging studies: CT scans, MRI and PET scans to locate, measure and identify possible causes that contribute to certain complications or health problems.
- Lab work: taken by blood sampling. Mainly to study the proper function of the body, also we perform chemical analysis for a full medical story on organ function and know the real condition of the patient.
- Symptoms: we are talking about the patient’s experience. The changes they in their body, directing our attention to them. We need to know the ones that require change or control on the follow up program. These changes will be confirmed with the tests we perform.
- Physical exam: our physician ability to find anything through sight, touch and smell.
The correlation between all the evaluations we perform on our patients, is the final step and it´s called: medical impression. It’s important for our patients to know that all tests have certain limitations and this final step will helps see the whole picture of the present situation.
That is why, we repeatedly say the communication between doctor and patient is vital. When we start the Functional Oncology Program we take into consideration the patients experience to create a personalized treatment.
In this final step, we need to know specific feedback with time and space about each intervention, so our medical team can prevent any complications. Thanks to all this information, our physicians create a personalized follow up program for our patients.
However, it’s the patient’s responsibility to follow it and achieve the final goal. In addition, our patients are informed about every step and medical evaluation needed, in case they do not agree on it or don’t want a specific exam, then our physicians eliminate that exam and they will continue their evaluation with those limitations.
