Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy uses carefully targeted and regulated doses of high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells. Radiation causes some cancer cells to die immediately after treatment, but most die or become incapacitated as a result of the radiation-induced damage to the cancer cell’s chromosomes and DNA.

Radiation Oncologists work closely with Medical Oncologists, Surgical Oncologist  & surgeons and other doctors to coordinate the most appropriate care for you with experience and advanced technology. Erode Cancer Centre’s radiation therapy services combine the quality and capability of state-of-the-art equipment with the expertise and compassion of the medical staff.

Specialized skills.

Each Radiation Oncologist has specialized training in performing radiation treatment for patients with cancer and those with certain noncancerous (benign) conditions. The doctors further specialize by concentrating their individual practices on treating different types of cancers, including complex and rare cancers. This specialized expertise ensures precision treatment and improved outcomes treatment tailored to your needs. Erode Cancer Centre’s Radiation Oncology professionals tailor treatment to your needs. After the Radiation oncologist identifies the areas to be treated, radiation is directed to the cancerous tumours simultaneously minimized dose to adjacent normal tissues.

This treatment involves placement of radioactive sources within the tumor. This involves placement of applicators in the tumor area and treatment is planned with the help of CT scan and then applicator is connected to (HDR Micro selectron) machine. The small radiotherapy sources (Ir-192) enter the applicator to tumor area and Finish the treatment in few minutes. The treatment is repeated depending on the type of tumor and needs of patient.

Medical Oncology

The Medical Oncology department provides excellent in-patient and day-care facilities. The department deals with the systemic therapy of cancer including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapies and supportive care. Our experienced team trained in best institutes in the country and abroad, uses chemotherapeutic drugs to treat various cancers. Medical Oncology improves the efficacy of surgery and radiation therapy when cancer is diagnosed early. In an advance stage, it improves the quality of lives of patients and prolongs survival.

During the treatment patients are given chemotherapy drugs in the form of tablets and injections. The treatment is given once in a few weeks for a period of time depending upon the condition of patients and the nature of cancer. Prior to starting with the treatment, all side-effects of chemotherapy are well explained to patients and their attenders and how to cope up the side effects. We are managing all the side effects with effective Pre-medication & Pre- chemo counselling . The department is equipped with the most advanced chemo-delivery technology and equipment to make the experience easier and better for patients.

We make sure patients complete their drug cycles within the prescribed time-limit and move to the next level of treatment according to the plan. We keep ourselves updated with the latest drugs, procedures, and innovations in the field of medical oncology to give best possible care to cancer patients.

Surgical Oncology

Surgery is used to diagnose, stage and treat cancer and certain cancer-related symptoms. At Erode Cancer Centre (ECC), our experienced Surgical Oncologist & Surgeons have performed thousands of procedures and will discuss the surgical options that are best suited to your individual needs.

Whether a patient is a candidate for surgery depends on factors such as the type, size, location, grade and stage of the tumour, as well as general health factors such as age, physical fitness and other medical comorbidities. For many patients, surgery will be combined with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy or hormone therapy. These may be administered before surgery (neoadjuvant) or after surgery (adjuvant) to help prevent cancer growth, spread or recurrence.

Early in the treatment planning process, we plan for and proactively manage any side effects from surgery. Our nutrition specialist and rehabilitation therapists will work together with your surgical oncologist to support your healing and quality of life. Our reconstructive surgeons perform procedures to restore the body’s appearance and function, often at the time of surgery or following surgery

Pain and Palliative Care

Pain & Palliative care is care for adults and children with serious illness that focuses on relieving suffering and improving quality of life for patients and their families, but is not intended to cure the disease itself. It provides patients of any age or disease stage with relief from symptoms, pain, stress and should be provided along with tender care.

Pain & Palliative care may be delivered by Specialist doctors and nurses, they may ask for the help of a specialized team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work with them to provide an extra layer of support addressing the patients needs and helping patients and their families have a voice in realizing their treatment goals.

Pain & Palliative or supportive care is given throughout patient care whenever the person is having symptoms that need to be controlled. This can be from the time of diagnosis until the end of life. It’s appropriate at any age and at any stage in any serious illness.

Pain & Palliative or Best Supportive Care is also about giving patients options and having them take part in decisions about their care. It’s about assuring that all their care needs are addressed – their physical, emotional, spiritual, and social needs.
