We aim to ensure that every patient under our care provided with the full continuum of emergency healthcare services. Our experts use state-of-the-art technology, infrastructure and facilities comprise of offerings important for a faster and healthier recovery cycle.
Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) is a technique that is used to treat gastrointestinal cancers and sarcomas which are too advanced. HIPEC is used often in combination with Cytoreductive surgery. Cytoreductive surgery is a complicated surgical procedure, which involves the removal of tumour deposits in the abdomen along with multiorgan resections.
We at Yashoda Cancer Institute, use this innovative combinational approach for removal of tumour deposits in the abdomen and the peritoneum by delivering heating chemotherapy drugs that are circulating throughout the abdominal cavity. It is a practical approach for peritoneal carcinomatosis.
Yashoda introduces North India’s first latest configured machine TomoTherapy, which is designed with an integrated approach to deliver image-guided, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) safely and routinely, for the treatment of cancer and other diseases.
The precision of TomoTherapy makes it possible for clinicians to identify and correct for any variations in patient positioning, changes in the tumour or other factors, to ensure the safe delivery of radiation to the targeted area without damaging healthy tissues.
Immunotherapy is an excellent way of treating cancer that works by boosting the natural defence system of the body to fight against cancer. It improves the immune system of the body by using substances made from living organisms to treat cancer. Thus it is also called biological therapy.
Immunotherapy is known to work by:
Help in destroying the cancer cells by enhancing the efficiency of the body’s natural immune system.
Considered as the golden standard for diagnosing early-stage breast cancer, a digital mammogram is widely used to diagnose breast cancer. It is a non-invasive method of creating 2D and 3D images of the breasts to help doctors provide exceptional care for breast cancer with confidence. Our 3D biopsy system provides mammogram images with outstanding detail and superior diagnostic accuracy with small doses of radiation.
IMRT is a newer and most sophisticated way of delivering radiotherapy. To treat almost all types of solid tumours arising from Brain, Head and Neck, Lungs, Lymphomas and Gynaecological Cancers, surgeons around the world are using IMRT while minimizing the exposure to surrounding tissues.
IMRT uses a 3D scan of the body to guide the radiation to the tumour from many different angles, rotation around the patient in an arc shape. At Yashoda CC, surgeons use VMAT (Volumetric Arc Therapy) techniques to deliver IMRT using Trilogy Tx Linear Accelerator machine. The advantage of this technique is that it reduces the treatment time to a few minutes and integral doses to one-tenth.
To improve the chance of killing cancer precisely, IGRT is an evolution in radiotherapy. It reduces the risk and severity of therapy-induced complications. Using image technologies like PET, MRI, and CT, IGRT treats cancer cells more accurately and safely. It is the most suitable type of treatment for lungs, Prostate, Urinary Bladder, and Gynaecological cancers.
The main advantages include:
A PET/CT scan is one of the best ways to find cancer and its stages. A PET CT scan utilizes radiation to show activity on a cellular level within the body. A small amount of radioactive material provides nuclear imaging to diagnose the severity of various kinds of diseases.
Yashoda Cancer centre has installed the latest generation PET/CT Scan machine to aid the diagnosis and treatment of a plethora of diseases such as gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders, heart disease, and other abnormalities within the body.
Yashoda Cancer centre has installed the first of its kind a1.5 Tesla Volume MRI machine in India, which helps doctors to diagnose a problem and monitor it throughout the treatment. It is a non-invasive and painless procedure that does not involve x-ray radiation to create detailed images of the organs and tissues within the body. It is utilized to image almost all body parts, including the brain, spinal cord, breasts, heart, bones, joints, blood vessels, liver, prostate glands, etc.
Brachytherapy (brak-e-THER-uh-pee) is a type of a radiation therapy procedure that involves the placement of radioactive material inside the patient’s body to treat cancer. Also called internal radiation, this therapy helps the doctor to deliver higher doses of radiation to more-specific areas of the body to treat a variety of cancers. Generally, there are two types of Brachytherapy:
