Surgery is the primary treatment of choice in many early stage Cancers. Removal of tumour by surgery is a fast and the most effective way to eradicate the disease. Our Surgical Oncologists are highly experienced and trained for difficult Cancer surgeries. They play a vital role in every sphere of Cancer Care, from diagnosing, staging, treatment following up and supportive care. To start treatment itself our surgeons access the tumour directly by FNAC or under image guidance Needle Biopsy for Tissue Diagnosis.
Once the tumor is completely removed, its histopathology report gives biological knowledge and correct staging of the disease. Complete staging helps to plan further treatment, to forecast expected outcome and the overall the result of treatment. With better understanding of tumor biology and revolutionary developments in Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology, there is a shift from radical Surgery to lesser Radical Surgery with emphasis on preserving organ as well as good functioning.
In the early planning process, we plan and proactively manage the anticipated side effects from surgery, to decrease the hospital stay and post-operative morbidity.
Our Nutritionists, Physiotherapists and Clinicians work together to support healing and quality of life. Gynaecologic Oncology is a specialised field of medicine that focuses on Cancers of the Female Reproductive system, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer and vulvar cancer. Our specialists have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of these cancers. Gynae Oncologists are also trained to treat pre-invasiv e lesions of vulva, vagina and cervix by both ablation and excisional techniques.

Sentinel Lymph Nodes Biopsy
Identification and removal of Sentinel Lymph Nodes helps to plan the extent of axillary of lymph nodes dissection and unnecessary lymph nodes dissection can be avoided to prevent complications following surgery specially Lymphedema of arm. Technique is also useful in Head & Neck Cancer, Melanoma & Gynaecological malignancies.
