At Medanta Cancer Institute, we have a dedicated team of oncologists, organ-specific cancer surgeons, and experts from various specialities, including radiation therapy, and medical and haemato oncology, to deliver care that addresses all aspects of the disease.
The Tumor Board take a unique multi-disciplinary approach to curate a customised treatment plan for each patient depending on the type and stage of cancer. We also bear in mind each patient’s individual circumstances, values, and preferences.
Our specialists are backed by a skilled support network that includes specially trained oncology nurses, radiologists, pathologists, and genetic counsellors.
Robotic radical prostatectomy is a minimally invasive surgical technique for removing the prostate gland in prostate cancer patients. Surgeons use robotic assistance to enhance precision and reduce complications. It offers faster recovery and less pain compared to traditional open surgery.
Radiation therapy for breast cancer uses high levels of radiation to kill cancerous cells in the breast or stop them from multiplying further. All the mutated cells that are left after chemotherapy are also killed in the process.
Craniospinal Irradiation is essentially applied on patients who are at a risk of suffering from a disease or metastasized brain tumour. It is also used when the central nervous system (CNS) cannot be treated with chemotherapy.
Tomotherapy is a form of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), in which the radiation is transported slice-by-slice. The word Tomotherapy has emerged from a Greek prefix – tomo, which means slice. Tomotherapy is an advanced technology by which powerful and precise radiation beams are continuously produced to treat inoperable tumours. The inbuilt CT scanning helps in confirming the size and position of the tumour prior the treatment.
Cancer is a stage when carcinoma cells begin to grow in an uncontrolled manner. They form a mass that is called as tumor. The most dangerous property of a cancerous cell is that it grows and spreads to other body parts. Head and neck cancer is no different from it. Head and neck cancer is a state when different malignant tumors are developed around: Throat, Neck, Sinus, Mouth, Larynx
The pancreas is a large gland in the digestive system which is positioned in the abdominal cavity just behind the stomach. With the function of producing several vital hormones, it is also a digestive organ. Pancreatic cancer arises when pancreatic cells begin to grow out of control with the formation of a mass, called tumor. These cancerous cells can also effect others parts of the body. There are many types of pancreatic cancer. People who don’t smoke and maintain a healthy lifestyle are at a lower risk of developing this cancer. With its increasing cases every year, the chances of survival is low when diagnosed at a later stage. There are many treatment options available that can advance the quality of life of people with pancreatic cancer.
A malignant tumour that develops in the cells of the lungs, Lung Cancer can be of two types based on cell size – small cell lung cancer and non-small lung cancer.
The tube that connects the mouth and nose to the lungs is called as the Trachea, and the air we breathe goes in and out of the lungs through it. Trachea is placed in front of the oesophagus and it carries the food down from the mouth. It is about 5 - 6 inches long and consists of fibrous tissue rings.
