Dr Márta Szőnyi

clinical oncologist, onco-rehabilitation specialist

At the Onco-Rehabilitation Centre of the Panoráma Polyclinic, she carries out so-called pre-rehabilitation, complex rehabilitation, aftercare, prevention of the long-term effects of anti-tumour treatment and prevention of cancer in oncological cases (e.g. patients suffering from breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer).

Our clinic is the first and currently the only one in Hungary to provide oncological rehabilitation care. This practice is not found at all in public care in a complex form that accompanies the patient for the rest of his/her life, one of the important goals of which is the prevention of metastases and recurrence.

However, the experience of this method, which has been introduced in Europe, particularly in the United States of America, shows that its patient-centred approach helps patients suffering from a severe disease or who have already survived a serious illness to return to the pleasures of everyday activities without being overshadowed or made impossible by the side effects of oncological treatments.

In addition, the process of rehabilitation helps patients to recover mentally/psychologically, physically and psychosocially, and to maintain the quality of life as much as possible, by reducing the damage caused by the treatment of the tumorous disease.

Onco-rehabilitation should be started immediately after the diagnosis (pre-rehabilitation), and it is also a strong help if the patient is medically fit to return to everyday life after a completed hospital treatment, in a recovered status from the medical point of view.

Onco-rehabilitation in outpatient care is carried out by an oncologist, who manages the following tasks:

  • makes suggestions to reduce the long-term effects of anti-tumour treatment,
  • in the long term, the oncologist will evaluate the chances of recurrence and metastasis of the disease by means of specialized tests and will make recommendations for their screening and prevention,
  • discusses with the patient the symptoms of side effects or complications appearing during hospital therapy carried out according to the protocole (e.g. mobility difficulties, fatigue, pain, weakness or other individual symptoms that the patient would like to have corrected)
  • helps the patient to maintain and regain both psychological/mental and physical fitness, making everyday life easier,
  • pays exceptional attenttion to the patient,
  • devotes adequate time to the patient,
  • assists and coordinates the treatment process, develops and prepares therapies to maintain the quality of life.
