Department of Oncology

Oncology is the medical specialty that pertains to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The term oncology literally means study of mass or tumor in Greek. Similarly, an oncologist is a physician who treats cancer and is responsible for the provision of treatment to anyone that has been diagnosed with cancer.

Oncology typically has three major areas- medical, surgical and radiation. A patient's tumor size is reduced and his side effects are mitigated via medicine and radiation. After the tumor size has sufficiently reduced, it is cut off and removed from the body surgically.

About the Department

The department of oncology at Neelkanth Hospital is one of the best oncology treatment centres in Gurgaon. The centre is equipped with state of the art equipment for oncology care. It ties up with some of the best oncology centres in the country. The centre has an established one of the best radiation oncology facilities, with IGRT technology, brachytherapy, stereotactic radiosurgery, etc., in the country.

The department oncologists are supported by expert and experienced radiation oncologists, physicists, and other skilled staff who use advanced radiotherapy techniques to help reduce the patient’s side effects and improve their prognosis. They try to cure the patients with just the use of a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, without any surgical intervention to improve the patient’s outcome.

The department has a separate inpatient oncology ward with expert nurses and doctors trained in providing cancer care to the patients, who all work in shifts to provide care to the immuno-compromised patients and other complex cancer cases. There is a special ward for immuno-compromised patients to prevent cross infection from other hospitalized patients.
