Dr. Aditya Bansal, MD
Dr. Aditya Bansal graduated in Medicine from Odessa State Medical University (Ukraine). After completing her degree, she worked as a General Practitioner in India for over a decade.
In search of greater opportunities, she then immigrated to Canada, where she worked as a Physician Assistant in a respected Obstetrics and Gynaecology clinic. She also pursued further medical studies abroad in clinical attachment at the University of Leicester, Glenfield Hospital, in the United Kingdom.
During her work in her GP practice, Dr. Bansal encountered many patients suffering from cancer who were treated with standard treatments. But, as many forward-thinking doctors now knows, all cancers are not the same and, as such, they cannot be treated with a one-size-fits-all standard care approach. For many years Dr. Bansal wished that she could help patients with cancer in a deeper way – to help them truly reduce their suffering and help to increase not just their survival but overall quality of life.
By joining Cancer Treatment Options and Management, Dr. Bansal is proud to now be working directly with Precision Cancer Medicine. She is very excited to be a part of the CTOAM team and to help make a direct difference in the lives of cancer patients and their loved ones.
