This will enable experts to treat patients with a multidisciplinary approach

Asian Cancer Institute established a new cancer treatment centre in association with Apex Hospital to provide timely treatment to cancer patients for western suburban residents. This will enable experts to treat patients with a multidisciplinary approach. 

Dr Sanjay Sharma, Director, Asian Cancer Institute said “This centre in collaboration with Apex Hospital will be a ‘go-to’, option for cancer patients in western suburbs. The centre with its expertise, latest technology, and multidisciplinary approach will offer a wide range of treatment for those in need. Along with standard treatment like chemotherapy and radiation therapy, laser surgery for oral cancer, reconstruction surgery for oral and breast cancer, laparoscopy for stomach cancer and microvascular flap surgery can be performed for patients with head and neck cancer.  

Dr Dhairyasheel Savant, Joint Medical Director, Asian Cancer Institute said, “The centre will also provide targeted therapy and immunotherapy for cancer patients of every age group as per one’s disease status. Immunotherapy can be used in patients having head and neck, lung, kidney, bladder, liver, or breast cancer as it boosts the body's natural defence to fight cancer. Even a mutational test can be done and if it turns out to be positive then the patient can be suggested to opt for targeted therapy without any side-effects.”

Dr Vrajesh Shah, Director, Apex Multi-speciality Hospitals said, “The centre will encourage patients to report any abnormal changes occurring in the body. One will have to be watchful of the symptoms and avoid delaying the treatment. This centre will give a second chance to cancer patients by encouraging them to live a cancer-free life.”
