Cancer Screening

Cancer Treatment

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.

Cancer Screening

I am passionate about cancer screening for prevention and early detection purposes for one simple reason: it saves lives.

Screening tests help you detect cancer before the signs begin to appear or even before it becomes a cancer. This means that it is found at an early sage and can be prevented, cured or successfully treated. I assure you, there is nothing an oncologist would like better than this.

There are screening tests available for different types of cancer, especially the most common ones including: Breast, Cervical, Colon/Rectal, and Prostate cancers.

There are many guidelines which direct who should get screened, when they should be screened, which of the many screening tests is appropriate for each individual, the duration of screening intervals, as well as how to interpret the results and continue surveillance.

While there are general screening guidelines for the entire population, there is no one size fits all approach to individual screening. This is why I always advise a screening consultation with an oncologist who will go through your lifestyle, environmental factors, family history, and other unique risk/protective factors. You may also need to have a comprehensive physical examination. I use a guidelines-directed algorithm to determine what tests need to be done, as well as to interprete the results and provide counsel for the future.

Lectures/Speaking

Lectures / Speaking

I am a lifelong learner, and one of my passions is passing on the information I receive, discover or find, to those around me. I speak at conferences and seminars, teach classes, and generally enjoy sharing knowledge.

I speak about cancer prevention, cancer treatment, setting up a cancer center, cancer control programs and policy, excellence in the workplace, overcoming workplace burnout syndrome, work-life balance, and living your best life.

My passion project is ‘The Best Life Program’ – a passion, purpose and productivity series created to provide adults with tools and tips to maximize their potential and deliver their best work, all while being best version of the person they want to be.

Mentoring

I work with driven and determined early career physicians and healthcare professionals, helping them to find their niche within or outside the industry.

I am always excited to meet a health care professional who wants to pursue a career in oncology; however, I firmly believe that not every doctor is designed to be a clinician, and there are many ways to work in healthcare outside of the clinic.

Whether as a clinician, an administrator, or even a graphic artist, I would love to work with you to discover and maximize your strengths; deliver excellent service and contribute to the industry, all while deriving material value, generating revenue, and growing your career.
