Why Choose This Hospital


Invested in latest cancer infrastructure: Manipal hospital has all advanced infrastructure required to treat cancer. For breast cancer in particular, the hospital recently upgraded their mammography equipment to a latest model which can detect cancer earlier and also perform 3D scans and advanced biopsy interventions. Such an advanced mammography machine for breast cancer diagnostics is available in very few centres in Bangalore.

They have also invested in high-end facilities – Robotic surgery and HIPEC (Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy) infrastructure used for abdominal cancers. These advanced facilities are only available in few hospitals in Bangalore.

Experienced Oncology Team: Manipal hospitals has a large oncology team with all types of specialsits (surgical, medical and radiation therapy). Some surgeons here also have super-specialised surgery qualifications e.g. breast surgery, gynae surgeries, colorectal surgeries, bone oncology surgery etc. Such super-specialists are increasingly being recognised as site-specific surgeons with a focus on cancer in few body parts only. This exposes them to high volumes of a particular organ cancer.

He has a Fellowship in Breast Services, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, Dr. Ashwin Rajagopal has a Fellowship Breast reconstructive surgery at Breast services unit at Hull City Hospital and Stoke on Trent Hospital, UK. Dr. Somashekar has a Fellowship in Breast surgery, University of Pittsburg Medical Centre, Pittsburg, USA.

Cancer Rehabilitation Facilities: The hospital has a rehabilitation department with a special focus on cancer rehabilitation. This includes pain management which is very crucial for cancer patients in advanced stages. Other facilities such as nutrition management, speech therapy and occupational therapy are also important for cancer recovery.

Convenience of Multiple Branch Locations: Manipal hospitals has five branches across Bangalore, hence usually patients can easily travel to a branch close to them. Doctors from HAL Road main cancer centre, are generally available in other branches for follow up care.
