At its most basic, cancer is a disease of the genes in the cells of our body. Most of the cancers carry a cure if detected and treated early. We at Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai Cancer Care Centre believe in offering accurate diagnosis and comprehensive evidence based treatment with the help of advanced technologies to those who come to us. Essentially, cancer care is a team work. All treatment decisions in our center are based on a multidisciplinary tumor board comprising of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists along with pathologists and radiologists. We also have provision for second opinion. The cancer care center is complete with departments of surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pain and palliative services, rehabilitation and counselling.
The department of Surgical Oncology at the center of excellence in oncology offers wide array of surgical treatment for cancers involving breast, gastro intestinal system(esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum),head and neck(oral cavity, paranasal sinuses, larynx, pharynx, thyroid, salivary glands)thoracic region(lung cancers, mediastinum), genitourinary system(uterus, ovary, cervix, kidney, bladder, prostate, penis) and sarcomas(bone and soft tissue).In keeping with swinging pendulum, we offer minimally invasive surgical options (laparoscopic/ thoracoscopic) in selected gastrointestinal and thoracic cancers. As focus is shifted from extremely radical to conservative surgeries in breast cancer, we provide option for breast reconstructive surgeries using flaps.
In Mar Sleeva Medicity Palai, we strive to achieve excellence not only by delivering top class cancer treatment but also by encouraging open discussions regarding all available treatment options and expected treatment outcomes with those involved.
