We always follow international care pathways to offer the best in class and ethical treatment to all our patients.

PREVENTION

At least one-third of all cancer cases are preventable, Cancer is curable if detected early.

We promote health awareness amongst masses by emphasising on the need for lifestyle changes & taking charge of yourself from eating a healthy diet to scheduling regular cancer screening checkups to reduce your risk of cancer. We organise various talks, seminars and cancer detection camps for early diagnosis to keep a check on the growing number of cancer cases.

We have especially designed Preventive Health Check-up Packages for Cancer.  These packages have been specially designed for men and women separately according to their age.  They are quiet beneficial as they provide not only a comprehensive overview of the patient`s health and risks they face but are also helpful in diagnosing cancer at an early stage so that we have the best possible chances of cure.

DIAGNOSIS

Right diagnosis and accurate staging is the key to success in cancer management we have in house most advanced diagnostic tools to ensure that nothing goes wrong in diagnosing cancer so that our patients get the best possible cancer treatment with maximum comfort and safety.

There is a wide array of methods used to diagnose cancer.  These tests are best conducted by our expert

The most common diagnostic tools for cancer include:

  • Digital X-ray
  • Digital Mammography
  • Ultrasound
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • PET CT
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Endoscopy
  • Blood Tests
  • Biopsy

TUMOR BOARD

The centre-piece of our clinical cancer program is the tumour board where specialists from Surgery, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, Pathology and other subspecialties evaluate and discuss a multidisciplinary treatment approach which is being considered and helps in deciding the best line of treatment.

Surgery plays a pivotal role in management of most solid cancers. While surgery alone is adequate for early cancers, most advanced tumors require multi modality treatment.

Our highly trained and motivated surgical oncologists skilfully perform complex tumor removals. Dedicated state-of-art modular operating theatres, recovery and ICU staff ably support them. Site or area specific specialists man the discipline of surgical oncology so that the best possible results can be delivered in this field of cancer therapy.

Organ Based Surgical Units

A few of the fields include:

  • Breast Cancer Surgery
  • Gastrointestinal & Hepatic Tumors (Liver, Pancreas, Intestinal etc.)
  • Head & Neck Surgical Oncology
  • Soft Tissue & Bone Tumors
  • Thoracic Surgical oncology
  • Urological surgical oncology (including prostate)
  • Gynaecological oncology (including ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers)
  • Micro-vascular Reconstruction of Flap
  • Advanced Plastic & Reconstructive surgery

This type of the surgery returns the body to normal or near-normal appearance following cancer treatment. The most common restorative surgery is reconstruction of head & neck defects after resection of head & neck cancer by free flap reconstruction. Other common reconstructive procedures are facial reconstruction and testicular implants.

  • Minimal Access surgery

Laparoscopic (key-hole) surgery in staging & diagnosis: Advances in computer imaging and robotics have benefited both the surgeons and the patients in equal measures. Using small cameras, miniaturized instruments and imaging equipment, tumors are removed with the smallest possible incision. It helps the patient cosmetically and also reduces the recovery time and complications significantly.

The Department of Medical Oncology offers diagnosis and treatment for the entire gamut of solid tumors (breast, lung, colon, ovary etc.) and hematological malignancies (lymphomas, leukemia, multiple myelomas etc.) affecting both adults and children. The department aims at increasing the life expectancy and optimizing the quality of life of cancer patients by curative chemotherapy, supportive and palliative care.

Department of Medical Oncology provides state-of-the art-services in the management of cancer through the use of chemotherapy and allied drugs. We are dedicated to bring quality patient care and innovation in cancer care.

FACILITIES

Paras HMRI Hospital offers a state-of-the-art 10 bedded day care facility for chemotherapy.

  • Cytotoxic Admixture Rooms and laminar flow bio-safety cabinets conforming to world class standards
  • Well equipped in-house Pharmacy for all oncology medicines.
  • A multi-disciplinary team dispels services ranging from cancer screening to diagnosis and cancer management in a holistic manner.
  • The team comprises of experienced doctors, dedicated nurses and trained technicians

TREATMENT AND SERVICES

  • Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy uses drugs or medications to treat many types of cancer. It works by targeting and eliminating rapidly dividing cancer cells in the body.

  • Systemic: Mostly chemotherapy is given through a drip into a vein in your arm
  • Targeted: A lot of newer anti cancer medications are being developed that are more specific to the tumor and do not harm the normal body tissues as it does in traditional chemotherapy.
  • Intra-peritoneal: This treatment allows the drug to be sent to the cancer sites with fewer side effects to the rest of the body. It allows chemotherapy to be given into the abdomen.
  • Hormonal Therapy

Hormones are substances that occur naturally in the body and act as chemical messengers influencing the growth and activity of various cells.  Hormones are produced by a number of different organs or glands which form part of the endocrine system.  This therapy acts by altering the production or activity of particular hormones in the body.  They are most commonly used to treat breast and prostate cancers.  The type of hormonal therapy given depends on the cancer being treated.

  • Biological Therapy

Biological therapies use substances that occur naturally in the body to destroy cancer cells.  There are several types of such treatment including: monoclonal antibodies, cancer growth inhibitors, vaccines and gene therapy.

  • VMAT (Volumetric Modulated Arc Therapy)
  • IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radio Therapy)
  • IGRT (Image Guided Radio Therapy)
  • 3DCRT (3-Dimensional Conformal Radio Therapy)
  • Palliative Radiotherapy
  • HDR Brachtherapy

Our Department of Radiation Oncology offers state-of-the-art treatment options to bring to you the most innovative and comprehensive array of radiation therapy services. Our dedicated radiation oncologists can deliver a wide range of sophisticated internal and external beam radiation treatments that is available only in the best of radiation centres across the world.

Radiation therapy is one of the most modern and advanced treatment for cancer and it acts by killing cancer cells with the help of X rays by damaging DNA of tumor cells.  Almost two third of the patients suffering from cancer will require this treatment at some point of their life .Different types of radiation therapy may be administered depending upon the type ,size and location of the tumour.

TECHNOLOGY

Biggest challenge in radiation oncology is to hit the tumour with high precision and to protect the normal tissues. We have acquired for the very first time in this part of the world “Elekta Infinity Digital Linac with VMAT” which is admitted as the most advanced and versatile linear accelerator  which can deliver all kinds of sophisticated external beam radiation treatments including  VMAT, IMRT , IGRT, 3DCRT. We have also installed Gammamed plus iX 24 channel HDR Brachytherapy for our (IBU) Integrated Brachytherapy Unit .

Advantage of Elekta Infnity with VMAT

  • Accurate Shaping

High-resolution beam shaping, with seamless field delivery and rapid leaf-speeds to shape radiation beams to exactly match the tumour with sparing of surrounding normal tissues.

  • See and aim the target before hitting

Elekta VolumeView™ imaging is integrated into Elekta Infinity, enabling us to routinely confirm target and organ at risk positions immediately before treatment. We can quickly confirm size, shape and position of the target volume compared to plan, as well as the position of critical adjacent structures.

  • Totally Targeted Minutes

Elekta Infinity™ dramatically reduces treatment delivery time – to less than two minutes in some cases and with integrated imaging and highly conformal VMAT delivery, we can perform most treatment sessions in five minutes or less.

  • Treatment of  moving targets  

With Volumetric imaging it is possible to  synchronize beam delivery with the tumour motions  as the patient breathes in and out .Hence, we do not need to give extra margins to compensate for respiratory motions resulting in less chances of radiation induced  toxicity subsequently.

Integrated Brachytherapy Suit

Brachytherapy is a technique in which radiation sorce is placed  in close approximation of the tumour delivering a very high dose to tumour , there is rapid fall in radiation dose away from the target hence we can deliver a very high dose to the tumor with maximal sparing of surrounding normal tissues . Brachytherapy is  highly successful  for cancers of the , cervix ,prostate,  endometrium, breast, skin, bronchus, oesophagus, head and neck,  soft tissue sarcomas and many other types of tumour. Brachytherapy may be used alone or in combination with external beam radiotherapy in most of the cases

Our  Brachytherapy suite is a mini operation theatre where we can anaesthetise the patient for placement of Brachytherapy applicators ,we can also procure the images for planning and once the  plan is finalised treatment can be  done in the same room without moving the patient  this is quiet beneficial as  all the steps including  Brachy procedure imaging and treatment is done on the same table thus reducing chances  of applicator movement  also we can cross check position of applicator before delivering  actual  treatment .IBU adds to patient comfort as shuffling of patient to different departments is not required in post anaesthesia recovery period.
