Bangalore has 12 comprehensive cancer hospitals that treat pancreatic cancer. Liver, gallbladder and pancreatic cancers are treated by hepatobiliary oncologists. These hospitals offer all treatment facilities under one roof, but are expensive.
A good cancer hospital needs to have a strong oncology team with an experienced hepatobiliary onco-surgeon, a gastroenterologist, a Medical oncologist and a Radiation Oncologist.
Gallbladder, liver and Pancreatic cancer surgery is more complex than other cancer surgeries. The cancer hospital needs to have a well-equipped operating room with proper ICU backup, blood bank and trained nursing staff to handle complexities. Most small hospital operating theatres are not suitable for such surgeries. For pancreatic cancer treatment, most cases can benefit from minimally invasive surgery or Robotic surgery. This is available in very few hospitals in Bangalore. Advanced gallbladder cancers often require Radiation Therapy also. Latest models of machines are designed to be safer for patients and minimize harmful radiation to the rest of the body while treating cancer. You may check with our cancer counsellors to know which hospitals are better equipped and have senior oncologists to treat hepatobiliary cancers.
Bangalore also has 10 affordable care cancer hospitals which offer high quality hepatobiliary (liver, gallbladder and pancreatic cancer) treatment. Oncologists from large cancer hospitals consult in these mid-size hospitals and offer treatment here at affordable rates. If you need advanced cancer diagnostics or advanced treatment, you will be referred to a larger partner hospital. However, overall cost of pancreatic cancer treatment will be 30-40% lower than that in large cancer hospitals.
