The concerted effort of the Chief Medical Director, Prof D.E. Obaseki and Management to make UBTH a centre of excellence in Oncology care has yielded fruit as the new Ultramodern Brachytherapy suite has become functional.
This is sequel to the installation of the Cobalt 60 high dose rate Brachytherapy machine and successful training of personnel to man the Unit.
UBTH is now only the 2nd hospital (Public or Private) in Nigeria to offer Brachytherapy services using the Cobalt 60 high dose rate machine for the treatment of gynecological malignancies such as Cervix, Endometrial and Vagina Cancers.
By this feat, UBTH now occupies a pride of place in Nigeria Oncology space.
Congratulations to Radiation and Clinical Oncology Department!

This World Sickle Cell Day (observed every year on June 19), aims to raise awareness of sickle cell disorders.
Sickle cell disease is an inherited group of disorders where the red blood cells become deformed, forming the typical sickle shape. This comes with its attendant acute and chronic complications affecting a good number of organs in the body.
Nigeria has one of the highest burden of the disease in the world. Increasing its awareness is crucial because it is one disease that can be prevented if the relevant screening (determination of genotype ) is done.
Intending couples who hope to have kids should make it a point of duty to check their genotype to prevent having offspring’s who would have to endure the pain and suffering that comes with this disease.
