My work as a clinical oncologist is to treat people diagnosed with cancer using highly specialized and advanced chemotherapy and radiotherapy techniques.
I practice at the NSIA-LUTH Cancer Center, the Oncology unit of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, the most well-equipped cancer center in West Africa. The center was revamped and relaunched by the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Agency in 2016.
The NLCC is equipped with 3 world-class Linear Accelerators (LINACs) – 2 Vital Beam (Varian’s most versatile LINAC), and one Halcyon machine, the first of its kind in Nigeria, as well as a fully fitted modern chemotherapy suite.
The center also has a High Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy unit set up specially to treat Gynecological (Uterine Cervix Endometrial Vaginal and Vulvar) and Prostate cancers.
I work with NLCC and LUTH because no center in Nigeria is better equipped or better positioned to treat cancer with a full spectrum of specializations. We are right in the teaching hospital with consultants and specialists from every imaginable field available to consult and co-manage with us, as well as the most advanced radiation therapy team in the region.
I co-run the center’s tumor board, a multidisciplinary team made up of both regional and international experts where we discuss and review cases; ensuring that every client’s treatment plan is in keeping with the global standard of care.
