Surgical oncology is one of the fields of oncology that focuses on treating cancer surgically. Surgery is the mainstay of the treatment of solid organ tumors. Purbanchal Cancer Hospital has a dedicated and experienced team of surgeons who are always keen to work in a team for the betterment of patients. We are backed by a multidisciplinary team of radiologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, internists, nursing, physiotherapists, and dieticians.
Here in Purbanchal Cancer Hospital, we have a state-of-art operation theatre with a well-equipped intensive care unit and post-operative unit for smooth post-operative recovery of the patients. We provide surgical care in various aspects of surgical oncology. We have the expertise for:
Thoracic and breast oncosurgery
Every patient is discussed on the tumor board and a consensus is made according to the recent advancements in the field of oncology so that the patient gets the best available care.
Besides treating the patients surgically, we take active participation in diagnosing cancers. We are well trained in different diagnostic procedures like routine upper GI endoscopy, colonoscopy, cystoscopy and bronchoscopy. We also perform therapeutic endoscopic procedures like endoscopic polypectomies, stentings and band ligations. We are trained in minimally invasive surgeries for various malignancies including VATS (video assisted thoracoscopic surgery) and laparoscopic procedures. We routinely perform VATS and laparoscopic procedures in diagnosing various intrathoracic and intra-abdominal malignancies as well.
Since, Purbanchal Cancer Hospital is a comprehensive cancer center, all the facilities for cancer care are available within the hospital premises. As we have a team of experienced clinical oncologists, our patients get both the neo-adjuvant and the adjuvant treatment in the hospital itself. This prevents the number of treatment defaulters as the patients do not need to be referred to any other center.
We have been performing various surgical procedures including complex thoracic and abdominal surgeries with good results. In a short journey of 2 years, we have come a very long way and have established ourselves as one of the comprehensive cancer centers in the country. We are working hard to improve further. Patients with a diagnosis of cancer or with suspicion of cancer can visit us. We ensure that our patients will be provided with the best possible cancer care.
