Oncology Centre at SSIUH SSIUH is inaugurating soon an oncology centre with state of the art facilities including radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The centre will be run by highly qualified foreign doctors and technicians. The cancer

patient feel hopeless after diagnosing their illness, The SSIUH oncology centre will bring a hope to them as the cancer diagnostic and treatment facilities are not enough in Cambodia to fulfill the needs of

the patients. The only one public centre is over burdened by the number of patients and majority patients travel abroad to get better treatment. In presence of SSIUH oncology centre, they can cut their traveling cost

MOU Signing for Dialysis Unit at Sen Sok International University Hospital The SSIUH is thankful to NGO - Ubiquitous Blood Purification Centre - Japan for signing MOU for establishing of the Dialysis unit. On this occasion H.E. Mr. Ouk Rabun -Personal Advisor to the Prime Minister, Minister for finance and Economy, Secretary of state was Guest of honor. Luk Chumteave Ouk Ravin welcomes the guests and audience present at the occasion.

The other guests present at the occasion were Dr. Hideo Hidai, Dr. Haruki Wakai and Dr. Sabo Ojano. The partners of this project signed the MOU at the end of this ceremony and enjoyed this moment with the audience. Why Dialysis is Important for patients? Hemodialysis works by circulating the blood through special filters outside the body. The blood flows across a filter, along with solutions that help remove toxins.

Dialysis uses special ways of accessing the blood in the blood vessels. Blood is diverted from the access point in the body to a dialysis machine. Here, the blood flows counter-current to a special solution called the dialysate. The imbalances and impurities are corrected and the blood is then returned to the body. Typically, most patients undergo hemodialysis for three sessions every week. Each session lasts 3 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 4 hours.
