Tumor Board at Vejthani Hospital


Vejthani Hospital’s Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) meets periodically in a tumor board review. This is just one of the many behind-the-scenes methods we use to ensure we offer the finest care to our patients at Vejthani Hospital, using the most advanced techniques and equipment.

The MDT is composed of many healthcare specialists. It includes medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, physical therapists, genetics experts, nurses, and social workers.

Tumor Board Review

The purpose of the tumor board review is twofold. First, it serves as a preliminary “audition” of new equipment, surgical procedures, and medical techniques currently used to treat cancers and tumors.

The MDT uses their considerable knowledge, experience, and research ability to assess these new facets of treatment and judge whether they would measure up to the rigorous standards of care that the healthcare professionals at Vejthani Hospital adhere to.

The second reason for the tumor board review is to ensure that the protocols, treatments, and equipment we’ve been using provides the results we expect to see. This is to prevent any doubts or noticeable faults in our approved treatments, as they can fail our patients and destroy our well-earned reputation for providing the highest quality treatment.

Cancer treatments can be some of the most heartbreaking types of treatment to go through for families. It’s an often drawn-out and lengthy process that is hard on patients and their families. The tumor board review ensures that every cancer treatment offered at Vejthani Hospital provides the best chance to beat the disease.

Maintaining Our Standards

Vejthani Hospital has received numerous awards, accreditations, and citations from the Thai government and the local and international medical communities. Since achieving our first ISO 9001 certificate in 1999, we have been focused on maintaining a high standard of healthcare, and we’ve successfully made a name for our hospital, both locally and internationally.

Vejthani has been awarded CCPCs for its numerous programs in different departments from the Joint Commission International (JCI).

The awards, accreditations, citations, and accolades Vejthani has obtained are primarily due to the efforts of our staff and the dedicated professionals on the tumor review board.
