The Cancer Centre at Amrita Hospital is dedicated to providing fully integrated, multidisciplinary cancer treatment under one roof with state-of-the-art technology including prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, training & research. The Centre has assembled a wide range of experts in all disciplines related to cancer, from various parts of the country and abroad, to form an integrated team to treat the disease. We feel that this approach will provide the highest quality of scientifically guided cancer care in a modern, serene, compassionate and respectful environment and at affordable cost.
The major departments of Radiation, Medical, and Surgical Oncology are supported by community outreach programs in health awareness and education. These programs facilitate the early detection and cure of the disease. Although success is usually measured by cure, the ultimate measure of success is in the prevention of disease. This is our long-term goal.
The existing strong programs at Amrita Hospital in all the specialities and our institutional resources greatly help the management of disease in cancer patients and assure optimum care. Utilising the latest and most advanced technology, we provide precision treatment that minimises the unwanted side effects usually associated with cancer treatment.
The strength of the Cancer Centre lies in our ability to offer all treatment modalities within a single roof. Patients are seen and evaluated in multimodality clinics such as Head and Neck, Breast and Gynecology by a team of specialists in each malignancy. Treatment decisions are then made in multidisciplinary tumour boards where these specialists sit together and discuss the plan of treatment. The emphasis is on combining all modalities of treatment in the right combination to achieve the best results, while minimizing the side effects.
