Leading Cancer Treatment Hospital in Mumbai
Oncology is a branch of medicine dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. An oncologist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
At Fortis, we are committed to putting our patients first to deliver the best possible cancer care. From diagnosis to treatment to recovery, our teams of experts are here to help you and your caregivers during all stages of your cancer journey. Our department provides access to state-of-the-art therapies and comprehensive cancer care offering leading-edge medical, surgical and radiation oncology treatment options, as well as access to specialized research and diagnostic services.
The goal of any cancer treatment is to eliminate the cancer and prevent or reduce the chance of recurrence in the future. The various types of cancer therapy may be used alone or in combinations, depending on the type of cancer and other factors, such as stage of tumor, and your medical condition.
Our physicians use a multidisciplinary approach to care. We bring together clinicians from different specialties and departments to ensure you are receiving care for your whole body and mind, not just the cancer. Our adult and pediatric patients have access to the latest anti-cancer drugs, novel and targeted therapies, and emerging minimally invasive surgical procedures.
At Fortis, we combine the latest research advances with compassionate and personalized care to provide you with an individualized cancer treatment plan tailored to the stage and type of cancer you have. Our medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists work closely together to ensure you receive the best possible cancer care. Our teams also include counselors, pharmacists, social workers and other cancer specific caregivers dedicated to your cancer treatment and support.
Our constant endeavor at the Department of Oncology is to improve patients’ quality of life by providing a full spectrum of treatment and follow-up care. Our department has a longstanding tradition of providing warm environment, state-of-the-art technology and multidisciplinary approaches to the evaluation and management of any type of cancer.
A hallmark of Fortis is that we encourage the active involvement of our patients. We spend time discussing the benefits and risks associated of each procedure and treatment option and encourage our patients to become as knowledgeable as possible. We strive to bring clinical care delivery, education and research to the forefront of the patient experience.
