Department is supported by surgeons specializing region wise i.e. separate surgeons for cancers of head & neck region, gastrointestinal or abdominal cancers, breast cancer, gynecological cancers, genitourinary cancers, Thoracic, etc. with good support from reconstructive plastic surgery and other allied specialties. Operation theaters and other facilities are of international standards. Most surgeons are either trained abroad or in premier institutes of India.

In the department of surgical oncology of Apollo CBCC Cancer Care, we aim to provide high quality and comprehensive care to patients with solid organ malignancies. Providing comprehensive care involves taking care of all aspects of cancer treatment including screening & prevention, early diagnosis, staging, local and systemic treatment, reconstruction, follow-up and rehabilitation and palliative care.

We advocate organ specific and multidisciplinary care in surgical oncology and offer specialised services for the management of breast cancer, head-neck cancers, gastrointestinal and colorectal cancers, uro-genital cancers and gynaecological cancers.

All our surgical oncologists work as a part of the multidisciplinary team, working closely with the other specialists like radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, cancer care nurses, psychologists, nutritionists and physiotherapists to ensure best outcomes for our patients.

  • Daily outpatient clinics in all specialties from Monday to Saturday
  • Multidisciplinary clinics
  • Second opinion forums
  • The only center in Gujarat to provide stereotactic biopsy for breast cancer
  • All latest surgeries including oncoplastic and reconstructive surgeries are done
  • Patient support services including physiotherapy and lymphedema care.
  • Regular screening and awareness camps
  • Structured community outreach program for clinics and educational activities

Our Surgical Oncology Department has site specific clinics for different kind of Cancers depending on the cancer sites such as:

  • Brain Tumor Center
  • Breast Center
  • Head & Neck Cancer Center
  • Gastrointestinal & Hepatobillary  Cancer Center
  • Genitourinary Cancer Center
  • Gynecological Cancer Center
  • Bone & Soft Tissues

Medical Oncology is a discipline which deals with the systemic therapy of cancer including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapies, supportive care and stem cell/bone marrow transplantation.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is a method of cancer treatment in which anti-cancer drugs are given intravenously, by injections, or by mouth. Chemotherapy is often used in conjunction with radiation therapy and surgery, as a multimodality therapy. Anti-cancer drugs are special drugs which can only be prescribed by a person who has been trained in this specialty. In the last two to three decades chemotherapy has made great impact in the overall survival of many cancers.

Our Medical Oncologists at Apollo CBCC Cancer Care are highly experienced and few of the senior-most doctors in Gujarat who are determined to provide efficient treatment to the Cancer Patients. Medical Oncology unit at Apollo CBCC Cancer Care has a well equipped Day Care Center for Chemotherapies with extremely efficient Nursing Staff. Our center also houses Gujarat’s first private sector admixture unit which ensures zero contamination of  Chemotherapy drugs  for our cancer patients.

What we do

Our thrust is to use the latest protocols of treatment at a reasonable cost.

Our specialized work includes:

  • All Solid tumors like breast, gynecologic malignancies, colorectal, lung, prostate, head & neck cancers, brain tumors, neuroendocrine tumors, renal tumors etc.
  • Use of targeted therapies and monoclonal antibodies in various cancers.
  • We offer multidisciplinary opinion of surgeons or radiation oncologists to give better care to patients.
  • We follow recommended protocols to maintain uniformity of treatment.
  • We implant long term catheters ( Ports ) for safe and painless chemotherapy. We have the largest series of Port implantations in Gujarat.
  • Our staff nurses are well trained and dedicated in administering chemotherapy. They regularly undergo training for better care.

We believe in quality care and at a reasonable cost. For us the adage ‘Patient First’ has great bearing.

Radiation Therapy is one of the most effective modalities for the majority of cancers. It is estimated that radiation therapy is directly responsible for at least 40% of all cancer patients surviving beyond five years. Technical, academic and clinical advances in radiation therapy have improved patient management and outcomes very significantly.

The development of more sophisticated approaches to radiotherapy treatment have been made possible by improvements in radiological imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer tomography (CT), computerized 3-dimensional, ”inverse” treatment
planning, patient positioning , and more sophisticated linear accelerator technology.

Radiation Oncology Unit at Apollo CBCC Cancer Care is equipped with 2 Linear Accelerators to deliver the precise external beam radiation therapy treatments to our patients. We also have a Brachytherapy unit to deliver internal radiation therapies.

Apart from conventional 2-Dimensional and conformal 3-Dimensional Radiation Therapy, we are equipped to deliver various treatments listed below at our Radiation Oncology Unit:

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy where a radiation source is placed inside or next to the area requiring treatment. Brachytherapy is commonly used as an effective treatment for cervical, prostate, breast, and skin cancers, and can also be used to treat tumors in many other body sites.

Brachytherapy can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, such as surgery, external beam radiotherapy (EBRT) and chemotherapy.

IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy)

Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is the use of imaging during radiation therapy to improve the precision and accuracy of treatment delivery. IGRT is used to treat tumors in areas of the body that move, such as the lungs. Radiation therapy machines are equipped with imaging technology to allow your doctor to image the tumor before and during treatment.

IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy)

IMRT is an advanced type of high-precision radiation that improves the ability to conform the treatment volume to concave tumor shapes.

Rapid Arc

Rapid Arc radiotherapy technology is a new approach to image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IGRT/IMRT) that delivers precise treatments in shorter times than conventional IMRT. Rapid Arc delivers a highly precise treatment much faster than other technologies.

Stem Cell/Bone Marrow transplant is a procedure used to treat Blood Cancers and other hematological conditions. In a Stem Cell/Bonemarrow Transplant, the patient’s diseased blood producing (Hematopoetic) Stem Cells are replaced by Fresh Stem Cells either from the patient’s own body (Autologous Transplant) or from a Donor’s Stem Cells (Allogeneic Transplant).

Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant unit at Apollo CBCC Cancer Care is the first private sector Stem Cell Transplant Unit of Gujarat state. Our unit performs Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplants for various hematological conditions. We recently completed 151 transplants at our Stem Cell Transplant unit and the success ratio of the transplants performed at our center are at par with any Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant Center in USA or Europe.

The Stem Cell Transplant ICU performs various Stem Cell Transplant treatments such as:

  • Autologous Transplant
  • Allogeneic Transplant
  • Umbilical Cord Blood Transplant
  • Haploidentical Transplant

Diseases/Disorders Treated:

  • Myeloma
  • Leukemia / Acute Leukemia
  • Thalassemia
  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Sickle Cell Disease
  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
  • Hodgkin’s Lymphoma
