EXPERTISE AND SERVICES
The Oncology team at the SJM Hospital specializes in managing treatments for preventing, diagnosing and treating every stage of cancer affecting the organs, muscles and bones. We offer the highest levels of treatment protocols based on the latest scientific and technological advancements.
Our endeavour is to provide treatment that helps in fighting cancer in a quality infection controlled, comfortable, warm and cheerful environment with specially trained and compassionate nursing staff along with managing any side-effects effectively, making the patient experience more comfortable.
Our team has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating cancers such as:
Head and neck cancers - It includes a wide range of tumours that can develop in areas of the head and neck, including the mouth, throat, larynx, oesophagus, nasal cavity, sinuses, thyroid, parathyroid and salivary glands. Alcohol and tobacco are major causes of cancers of the head and neck. Most of the head and neck cancers can be cured, especially if they are diagnosed early.
Breast cancer - Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Indian women. It is a cancerous growth involving the cells present in the breast tissue. Breast cancer is predominantly seen in women but can rarely occur in men as well. If diagnosed early, it can be treated by medications or surgery. Breast cancer surgery removes malignant growths in one or both breasts.
Gastrointestinal cancers - Our surgical oncology team addresses all forms of gastrointestinal (GI) cancers including the oesophagus or the food pipe, stomach colorectal, liver and biliary system, and the small intestine. As far as possible our surgeons use minimally invasive laparoscopic and computer-aided techniques to lessen the impact of surgery on patients.
Gynaecological cancers - Gynaecological cancers are a group of cancers that affect the tissue and organs of the female reproductive system. Types of this cancer include ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, endometrial cancer, uterine cancer, etc. Treatment options for gynaecological cancer depend on where cancer started, stage of cancer and other general health factors.
