HOSPITAL HIGHLIGHTS

  1. Multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists: Treating cancer through a team of specialists (surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists) etc. is considered a global best practice. This hospital has a large team of doctors who work together on the treatment plan for a patient. Tumor boards are joint meetings where many specialists discuss each case, so patients can get inputs from each of the specialists.
  2. Super-specialized Head & Neck Oncologists: The hospital has separate specialists focused on head and neck cancers (oral, throat etc.). Two doctors are trained on advanced procedures and reconstruction for oral cancer in USA and India and have over 10 years of experience. Super-specialists focused on specific organ cancers build deep expertise in treating such cancers.
  3. Advanced Cancer Infrastructure: Almost everything recommended as per international guidelines is available here. Patients will rarely need to go out for facilities.
  4. Pain Management Specialist: Pain management is recognized as an integral part of cancer treatment. This stream has specialists who have advanced training in managing side effects and symptoms of treatment. This hospital offers a senior doctor who focuses on pain management, which is very good for patients.
  5. Supportive Care Beyond Clinical Treatment: While the hospital has all supportive care teams – nutrition, rehabilitation, speech therapy, psychology etc. they are the only hospital in Bangalore with dedicated Patient Navigators in hospital. These are cancer survivors who are deputed in the hospital to support patients ongoing treatments. This approach has received very positive feedback from patients who were treated here.
