State-of-the-Art Cancer Centre-2

State-of-the-Art Cancer Centre-1

Dr Chan Wee Han has been in his element since the opening of the Wolfgang Cancer Centre in Fatimah Hospital. Oncologist Dr Chan says, “It’s been over four months since the official opening of Wolfgang Cancer Centre and almost two years since I first started providing cancer treatment in Fatimah Hospital. Thankfully, all our facilities and services are up and running smoothly.”

“Our new building which houses the Elekta Synergy Linear Accelerator with 160 Leaf Multi Leaf Collimator (Agility), has been treating patients with Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy (VMAT) since March this year. Used mostly in complex Head and Neck cancers, this state of the art radiation therapy delivers precise radiation in 360 degree arcs around the patient. It is also used in Prostate, Rectal, Gynaecological and Brain cancers as well.

Moreover, since April this year, we have been treating gynaecological cancers such as Cancer of Cervix and Uterus with 3-Dimensional Conformal Brachytherapy. Since then, local patients with gynaecological cancers no longer need to travel out of Perak for their treatment.

“With the backing of a strong team of medical physicists and therapeutic radiographers, our radiotherapy services has seen steady growth. We make sure every patient goes through a patient education session with regards to their treatment procedures and care prior to starting treatment. Caregivers too are welcomed into these sessions.”

Its not just the equipment that is impressive. The new Wolfgang Cancer Centre also houses a Chemotherapy Daycare Centre which has a waiting lounge for family members and a counselling room. Patients spend between 30 minutes up till 8 hours in leather recliner sofas or beds while having their chemotherapy infusions. Understanding the frustrations of such long hours and stress, warm meals and drinks are provided but patients can also opt to bring their own food. Astro TV channels are provided for both patients and their waiting family.

It is here that patients and families have the most interaction among themselves and the nursing staff.

“In fact, our trained oncology nurses often carry out patient education, counselling or simply providing support to alleviate their fears and anxieties. Patients are usually from a diverse group of cancers ranging from Breast, Colorectal, Lung or Gynaecological cancers to rarer types such as Melanomas or Sarcomas,” added Dr Chan.

Recently, the centre organized a “Look Good, Feel Good” session for cancer patients which provided them with guidance on makeup, wigs and breast prostheses. Some are cancer survivors which Dr Chan hopes can also help share their experiences with the newer patients. “In fact, many came with food making it a “Potluck” event. It was a good experience and we hope to be able to have more of these events in the future,” enthused Dr Chan.

Knowing the importance of nutritional support, the centre has also arranged for an audio-visual presentation from one of the leading nutritional companies last month. This helped both their patients and staff to better understand the benefits and preparation of their products. There are also patients who are referred to the hospital’s dietician for dietary advice.

Hospital Fatimah’s Cancer Centre


Advanced cancer care is now available for patients in Perak with the opening of Hospital Fatimah’s new cancer centre. Named Wolfgang Cancer Centre (WCC), in honour of Brother Wolfgang Widmann, it was officially opened by the Honourable Msgr. Michael Cheah, Vicar-General of the Diocese of Penang on July 5.

Hospital Fatimah’s Cancer Centre

Wolfgang, 81, a member of the Order of the Brothers of Mercy, was a pioneer delegate dispatched to Ipoh to help run the hospital in 1975, where he served for eight years.

The facility consists of two units: Chemotherapy Day Care (CDC) on the ground floor and Radiotherapy Unit (RTU) on the lower ground floor. Services at WCC commenced in stages since March 2013. The centre is now fully operational.

Equipped at a cost of RM15 million with state-of-the-art cancer treatment machines, including the 160 multi-leaf collimator, Nucletron Brachytherapy and 32-slice Large Bore CT scanner, imported from Japan and Europe, they are capable of treating all kinds of cancerous tumours, with precision being the goal in diagnosis and treatment.

CDC can accommodate ten chemotherapy patients simultaneously. RTU, on the other hand, can take up to 35 cases a day. The facility has treated over a hundred patients to date.

Considered one of the most advanced cancer centres in Malaysia, Consultant Oncologist and Radiotherapist, Dr Chan Wee Han, who heads the facility with support from a team of medical physicists and radiotherapists at the RTU and a team of oncology-trained nurses at the CDC, believes that patients have a good chance of beating cancer. Even so, he stressed, “Early detection and early treatment are still the keys to cancer survival.” The top three most common cancers in Malaysia are colon, lung and breast cancer.

The opening of the Wolfgang Cancer Centre, located in the new 8-storey building of Hospital Fatimah, marks another important milestone for the not-for-profit-private-specialist hospital in Ipoh.

This community-based hospital, founded by the Congregation of the Brothers of Mercy, has a strong and active welfare system. Those who have difficulties in paying for their cancer treatment, even though the hospital keeps charges reasonable, are referred to the welfare department.

The Wolfgang Cancer Centre is located at Block E of Hospital Fatimah. Address: No. 1, Lebuh Chew Peng Loon, off Jalan Dato’ Lau Pak Khuan, Ipoh Garden, 31400 Ipoh.

Nutrition & Vitamins for the Eyes

Resident Consultant Ophthalmologist, Hospital Fatimah Ipoh

Dr S.S. Gill, Consultant Ophthalmologist

Ipoh Echo’s Eye Health series continues with Consultant Eye Surgeon Dr S.S. Gill talking to us more about Nutrition & Vitamins for the eyes.

Good nutrition with vitamins and minerals is important for the eyes to function normally. That is why it is important to be eating the right foods that contain the right vitamins to help keep your eyes healthy.

In this issue, Dr Gill speaks about vitamin E that is important for the eye.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is important to maintain strong immunity and healthy eyes. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects our cells from damage by free radicals that result from exposure to environmental pollutants around us including cigarette smoke.

When we say vitamin E, it does not mean one vitamin but actually a group of eight vitamins called tocopherols and tocotrienols. The most active form of vitamin E is Alpha-tocopherol.

How does vitamin E help the eyes?

There was a study on cataracts involving 764 people with the average age group of 65 years. The study showed that the regular users of vitamin E supplements were less likely to have an increase in lens opacity or cataracts. Vitamin E not only helps to possibly prevent cataracts, it might help prevent macular degeneration (AMD) which is a disease affecting aging people.

Should you choose natural or synthetic vitamin E?

When you read the label on the bottle of vitamins, how would you know whether it is natural or synthetic vitamin E? Well, when vitamin E is in its natural form, it is designated with a “d-” prefix (d-alpha-tocopherol). When it is a synthetic vitamin E, it will have a “dl-” prefix (dl-alpha-tocopherol). As with most things, the natural vitamin E is more beneficial than the synthetic forms of vitamin E. So, be sure to look at the source of the vitamin should you be purchasing a bottle of vitamin E. Just look for the “d-” prefix that indicates it is from a natural source.

Does our food have enough vitamin E?

almondsIf you have a balanced diet and avoid processed foods, you should be able to get adequate vitamin E from foods such as:

  • Green leafy vegetables, example – spinach
  • Eggs
  • Nuts, Almonds
  • Vegetable Oils

How much vitamin E should you take?

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) includes the vitamin E you get from both the food you eat and any supplements you take. Be sure to follow this. The RDA (recommended dietary allowance) for men or women older than 14 years old is 15 milligrams (or 22.5 IU).

Does vitamin E have Side Effects?

As with anything else, too much of vitamin E is not good. This vitamin is a fat-soluble vitamin which means it can accumulate in the body if taken in large quantities, causing unwanted side-effects. It can interfere with the body’s blood clotting ability and this can be dangerous if you are taking blood thinning medication. Overdoses also can cause nausea, headache, bleeding and fatigue.

Key points to remember:

Eat a good, balanced diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Discuss improving your diet or taking vitamin supplements with your GP.

Avoid smoking. A healthy lifestyle makes all the difference!

Dr Gill will talk more about other aspects of nutrition for the eyes in the next article.

Dr. S.S. Gill Resident Consultant Ophthalmologist

Eye Health: World Sight Day 2012

Resident Consultant Ophthalmologist, Hospital Fatimah Ipoh

Dr S.S. Gill

In conjunction with WORLD SIGHT DAY on the October 11, 2012, Ipoh Echo talks to Consultant Ophthalmologist Dr S.S. GILL on the Top 3 causes of visual impairment.

Visual impairment is a term used to describe any kind of vision loss to the extent that even with conventional forms of correction or treatment, the person’s vision remains poor. A visually impaired person usually requires some form of visual support such as a low vision aid and is usually unable to enjoy what most people would take for granted.

“Being visually impaired can be frightening, especially when it affects those who once had good vision,” says Dr Gill. “In fact, just taking into cognizance the facts on visual impairment should send the message that we cannot take our eyes for granted”.

Top 3 Causes of Visual Impairment

“Cataracts, or the clouding of the eye’s lens preventing light from passing through to the retina, is the most common cause of loss of vision,” says Dr Gill. “Because cataracts form slowly, causing gradual vision loss, it may not be noticeable to the patient until much later”. That is why annual eye checks for people above 50 years old are important.

Symptoms of cataracts include double, cloudy or blurry vision, difficulty seeing in poorly lit spaces, and colours that seem faded. Cataracts affect people in their 60s and 70s, but may sometimes appear earlier in people who are excessively exposed to sunlight. “Many younger patients who have cataracts early are golfers and sports people who are not in the habit of wearing sunglasses.”

Treatment with surgery involves replacing the eye’s cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Wearing sunglasses and a hat with a brim to block ultraviolet sunlight may help to delay cataracts.

Dr. S.S. Gill Resident Consultant OphthalmologistGlaucoma, a condition where an increase in pressure inside the eye impairs vision by damaging the optic nerve, is the second leading cause of visual impairment. “Any damage to the optic nerve is irreversible so it is important to find out if there is any history of glaucoma in your family as the condition is hereditary. Early detection and treatment is crucial or the vision will gradually deteriorate over time to a small tunnel vision, and then blindness can occur,” emphasizes Dr Gill. Treatment for glaucoma usually includes prescription eye drops and/or surgery.

Dr. S.S. Gill Resident Consultant OphthalmologistDiabetic retinopathy, another leading cause of visual impairment, is caused by diabetes. It is a condition where the tiny blood vessels in the retina (back of the eye) are damaged due to diabetes. It affects the vision of more than half of the people diagnosed with diabetes age 18 or older.

People with diabetes should have a complete eye exam through dilated pupils at least once a year. Diabetic retinopathy is treated with surgery or laser surgery. With timely treatment, adequate control of blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels, and regular follow ups, up to 90 per cent of all cases of blindness from diabetes can be prevented.

Preventing Visual Impairment

Treatment methods for cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and even age related macular degeneration (another leading cause of visual impairment) have improved over the years and can help slow or even halt vision loss, especially for those who are diagnosed and treated early.

Some final words from Dr Gill: “Many people will have some type of visual problem at some point in their lives. It is important that if you have an underlying condition like diabetes, hypertension or glaucoma that you visit an ophthalmologist regularly and comply with prescription medication and eye drops to prevent further vision loss.”

WHO Global Vision Facts:

  • 39 million people worldwide are blind
  • 246 million have low vision (severe or moderate visual impairment)
  • 80% of visual impairment can be prevented
  • 90% of the visually impaired people live in developing countries
  • Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness
  • Uncorrected refractive errors are the main cause of visual impairment
  • 65% of visually impaired and 82% of blind people are over 50 years of age

Eye Health – Nutrition and Your Eyes

Resident Consultant Ophthalmologist, Hospital Fatimah Ipoh

Dr S.S. Gill

Ipoh Echo’s EYE HEALTH series continues with Consultant Eye Surgeon Dr. S.S. GILL talking to us about NUTRITION & VITAMINS for the eyes.

Eating the right foods that contain the right vitamins do help to keep the eyes healthy. Good nutrition is important for both your general and eye health. It helps our body to grow, repair the wear and tear, protect against infections and to function properly. Likewise, good nutrition with vitamins and minerals are important for the eyes to function normally.

The main vitamins that are essential for the eyes include:

  • Vitamins A, C, E, B2
  • Minerals Zinc and Selenium
  • Antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin – known as ‘carotenoids’
  • Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA.

In this issue we will cover Vitamins A and C.


Vitamin A is also known as retinol because it produces the pigments in the retina (nerve) of the eye. Vitamin A promotes good vision, especially in low light. Night blindness is therefore an early symptom of deficiency because there is damage to the retina (nerve at the back of the eye).

Vitamin A deficiency is a clear example of how the lack of this vitamin can cause serious eye problems resulting in a condition called xerophthalmia.  It is a common cause of childhood blindness in developing countries especially in Africa and Latin America. It is caused by lack of Vitamin A in the child’s diet. This is simply because the poor child does not get to eat fresh green leafy vegetables and proteins in the form of meat, eggs, cheese, fish, poultry, milk, yoghurt, dairy products, nuts and grains.

Vitamin A helps the surface of the eye form an effective barrier to bacteria and viruses, thereby reducing the risk of eye infections. The lack of vitamin A causes the cornea to become very dry, leading to clouding of the front of the eye, corneal ulcers and finally vision loss.


Vitamin C is good for our whole body and particularly good for your eyes. The aqueous humor is the fluid that fills the space between the cornea and the iris in the eye and  nourishes and protects the cornea and lens.

The aqueous humor has very high levels of Vitamin C, in fact much higher levels of Vitamin C than in our blood. Therefore, maintaining high levels of Vitamin C in the aqueous is essential to nourish the eyes and protect them from oxidative stress and to help maintain clarity of the lens of the eyes. So, make sure you eat diets rich in Vitamin C like citrus fruits, capsicum, broccoli and strawberries to maintain good eye health.

Generally, a good balanced diet that includes sufficient fresh fruits and vegetables should be adequate in providing all the vitamins and minerals that the eyes need in order to be healthy and function well. The problem lies in the fast-food diets that may lack the ingredients of a healthy meal. This is where vitamin supplements could help.

Dr Gill will talk more about other aspects of nutrition for the eyes in the next article.

Eye Health – More on Ocular Migraine

Resident Consultant Ophthalmologist, Hospital Fatimah Ipoh

Dr S.S. Gill

Ipoh Echo’s EYE HEALTH series continues with Consultant Eye Surgeon Dr S.S. GILL talking to us more about OCULAR MIGRAINES.

Ocular Migraine may be a terrifying experience when it happens to a person for the first time.  The person may actually feel as if they are going blind. Some have described Ocular Migraine as a feeling similar to having a stroke. The visual symptoms can often be quite dramatic and frightening. The good thing is, it usually lasts for only a short while.

Most of the time, it starts as a small, enlarging dark area (scotoma) in your central vision. The dark central area then usually enlarges to move across the entire field of vision and the person feels like he or she is losing vision quickly in the eye.

Although symptoms are in the eye, the actual seat of the migraine activity is in the brain located at the back of the skull (visual cortex). The blood vessels here go into spasm thereby causing the symptoms and later begin dilating causing the blood vessels to over-fill and result in a throbbing or “pounding” headache.

Eye Health - Dr S.S. Gill

Ocular Migraine

Some common causes:

  • Overtiredness, fatigue, lack of sleep, weather changes, stress and depression.
  • Hormonal fluctuations as in menstruation.
  • Some medications like oral contraceptives.
  • Foods containing MSG, alcohol consumption, caffeinated beverages, cheese, tea, coffee, chocolates, artificial sweeteners, meats preserved in nitrates.

What to do for an Ocular Migraine

  • WHEN DRIVING: If it occurs when you are driving, pull to the side until vision is clear.
  • WHEN OPERATING MACHINERY: Always move away from the machine!
  • Generally, ocular migraines do not cause any harm like a permanent visual or brain damage. Hence, it usually requires no treatment. Nevertheless, always consult your eye doctor when you have unusual vision symptoms to make sure that it truly is Ocular Migraine and nothing else.

Some home remedies:

  • Applying cold compresses over the head to relieve any nagging headache.
  • Closing the eyes to rest.
  • Retiring to a darkened room to relax and de-stress often helps.
  • Sleep adequately for at least seven to eight hours every day.
  • Hydrate well and drink plenty of water.
  • Avoid alcohol and limit caffeine intake as well.
  • Medication like analgesics may provide some relief should you have any headaches.
  • Medication that have effects on blood vessels such as cafergot and ergotamine can also be used for migraine relief.
  • It is important to take medication only on the prescription of a doctor. Avoid self-medication beyond a simple analgesic or a cool compress.

Hospital Fatimah Takes Measures to Improve Traffic Congestion


Hospital Fatimah IpohFollowing a letter from a resident published on June 1 (IE Issue 144), Hospital Fatimah is taking measures to improve the congestion of traffic around its neighbourhood caused by the increasing number of patients to the Hospital and the limited parking lots within its grounds. In a letter addressed to neighbourhood residents, the Hospital stated that, although it has no control over where  patients park their cars outside the Hospital, it is taking steps to address the issue by:

  1. Intensifying efforts to construct more car parks within the Hospital grounds.
  2. Implementing carpooling and back-to-back parking for staff cars.
  3. Surveying the neighbourhood during peak hours for cars parked haphazardly and announcing through its public address system, advising patients to remove their cars (much like what is done in shopping malls).

Much like the other private hospitals in Ipoh, Hospital Fatimah shows that it has recognised and borne the responsibility of improving the parking situation.

Another major parking problem is at the Hospital Tuanku Bainun (General Hospital). It is hoped that the management of the General Hospital are taking similar measures to alleviate their patients’ parking problems.


Disaster Drill


Hospital Fatimah Ipoh disaster drillHospital Fatimah, Ipoh, conducted an hour-long major disaster drill within its complex recently. The scenario was of an accident involving an oil tanker and eight cars inside the Menora tunnel, Jelapang along the North-South Expressway. The “collision” resulted in a fire with at least 20 casualties.

The drill, part of the hospital’s safety and health staff training exercise, was held during office hours. The primary objective was to test the response time of the hospital staff during a major disaster. It was also aimed at testing staffs’ knowledge and implementation of emergency procedures, and to check the serviceability of equipments and facilities.

Those involved in the exercise were from the admission and emergency department, the supply, procurement and distribution department, engineers, doctors and nurses. Students from Hospital Fatimah School of Nursing and SMK St Michael, Ipoh, took on the roles of ‘accident victims’.

This was the 11th major disaster drill organised by the hospital. It is an annual affair with a different scenario enacted each time.


Eye Health – Cataracts

Dr S S Gill, Consultant Ophthalmologist, Hospital Fatimah Ipoh

Dr S S Gill, Consultant Ophthalmologist

Ipoh Echo’s Eye Health series continues with Consultant Eye Surgeon Dr S.S. Gill talking to us about what needs to be done before you go for cataract surgery.

Arrange time away from work

Patients may need anywhere between a few days to a few weeks off work, depending on the nature of their jobs, before returning to their regular schedule. You should not rush into cataract surgery without sorting this out first as it just adds to your stress.

Arrange for a Driver

It is best to arrange a caregiver to drive you to and from the hospital on the day of your cataract surgery. Make sure your driver is also available on the day after your surgery in order for you to be examined by your doctor on the first postoperative day.

Eye Health - Cataracts - Dr S S GillReview your medications

You will need to give a detailed list of all medications that you are currently taking to the eye surgeon as some of these may need to be adjusted prior to the surgery. Never withhold information on any medication or medical problems that you may be having. Accurate information given to your doctor will help avoid complications and quicken recovery after cataract surgery. Unless instructed by your doctor, you will need to take all of your normal medications on the day of surgery.

If you are on medication to thin the blood (antiplatelet medication) your doctor may require you to stop taking them several days prior to cataract surgery. Generally, cataract surgery is bloodless but in some instances adjustments may still need to be made for some of the blood-thinning medication.

If you are a diabetic with poorly controlled blood glucose levels, your physician will be able to help you sort this out prior to undergoing cataract surgery as you will run a higher risk of complications during the recovery process if this is not attended to.

If you are hypertensive, you will still need to take all your antihypertensive medications on the day of surgery. Do not stop taking these medications unless instructed.

If you are on drugs for treatment of enlarged prostate like Flomax and other similar medications known as alpha-blockers, you will need to highlight this to the doctor prior to eye surgery because these drugs may cause eye problems associated with floppy iris syndrome (IFIS) during cataract surgery.

Eating and drinking

Pay special attention to any special instructions regarding meals prior to surgery. Do not drink any alcoholic beverages for 24 hours prior to your surgery. Follow these instructions closely.


On the day of the Cataract Surgery, your face should be free from makeup, eye-liners, cosmetics or powders of any kind. You should also have a thorough hair-wash and shower on the morning of surgery. Wash your face thoroughly with a mild soap. Proper hygiene will also need to be practised during the healing phase after the surgery.

Dr. Gill will discuss more on what happens during surgery in the next issue of the Ipoh Echo.

Hospital Fatimah _Open Day_ 1

Hospital Fatimah “Open Day”


Did you know:

  • There is a heated Hydrotherapy Pool inside Hospital Fatimah?
  • Hospital Fatimah’s Radiology Department is the only Radiology Department in Malaysia which has an “Underwater World” ambience?
  • Hospital Fatimah provides Fango Heat Therapy? What is Fango Heat Therapy?

Hospital Fatimah will be having an Open Day at the Hospital on Saturday November 12, 2011.

The Hospital is showcasing its Radiology Department, Physiotherapy Department and the laboratory of Gribbles Pathology to the corporate clients of the Hospital, general practitioners, specialist doctors, partners in service and the community of Ipoh.

The Hospital’s Radiology Department will be introducing its spectrum of diagnostic services on this one-day-only event. Some of the modern diagnostic technologies available in Hospital Fatimah are the 128-slice Computed Tomography Scanner, or better known as the 128-slice CT Scanner, the Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI, Computed Radiography System and lots more. This Department is unique due to its “Underwater World” ambience and for having the fastest 128-slice CT Scanner in town.

While the 128-slice CT Scanner is the star of our Radiology Department, the heated Hydrotherapy Pool is the main attraction of our Physiotherapy Department. The heated pool, which has been refurbished, was built since the Hospital’s inception in 1974. When your joints are stiff and in pain, even gravity can seem to be against you. Hydrotherapy will help you feel light again. Water provides a buoyancy and weightlessness, which are useful for people with stiff joints. In a heated pool, the joints can become supple and flexible.

The other star of our Physiotherapy Department is the Fango Heat Therapy. Fango is Italian volcanic mud made from volcanic ash imported from Germany. Fango, when directly applied on affected joints, produces rapid heat induction and pain relief.

The Gribbles Group was established in 1936 in Adelaide, Australia and was acquired by Healthscope Limited (second largest private health care operator in Australia) in December 2004. Gribbles Malaysia was established in 1996 and now is a part of Healthscope Group, Australia. Gribbles Pathology in Hospital Fatimah was accredited with MS ISO 15189 standards by the Department of Standards, Malaysia in 2010.
