The fortis cancer Institute at Mulund, Mumbai provides comprehensive research in cancer care and is one of the very few cancer centers that offers end to end cancer from diagnostic to rehabilitation . Where all cancer – radiotherapy ,chemotherapy onco –surgery and reconstructive surgery are provided in the same roof.
Fortis Comprehensive Customised care for Cancer
diagnoses the treatement of all hematological malignancies( liquid tumor) as well as treating a spectrum of solid tumors with chemotherapy.
Fortis Radiation Oncology involves treating cancer using radiation in the form of high energy rays or particles. Radiation therapy is an effective way to treat many cancers either as the sole treatment or in combination with surgery or chemotherapy.
This involves precise placement of radiation sources directly at the source of the cancerous tumor, and it affects only the localized area around the radiation source. This is mainly used for cancers of the prostate, breast, head and neck, uterus, thyroid, cervix in combination of external radiation therapy.
The Benefits of Fortis Radiotherapy
Fortis is also the first cancer institute is the first hospital to acquire the most sophisticated radiation therapy equipment – the ELEKTA Synergy Linear Accelerator. This enables us to deliver treatement using the following techniques
- Image guided Radiotherapy (IGRT )
- Intensity Modulated Radiation therapy (IMRT )
- Volumetric Modulated ARC Therapy (VMAT)
- Stereotactic Radio Surgery.
The synergy system can treat tumors and small lesions in the brain and other parts of the body quickly with precisely targeted powerful beams . VMAT technology helps target the treatment area more effectively and accurately and reduces treatment time by 35% -40% . This combines sophisticated Oncentra Treatment Planning System to calibrate the maximum dose to the tumor while sparring the normal tissues.
The benefits of ELEKTA Radiotherapy
Onco Surgery :
- Patient Comfort with shortes possible treatement time (7 minutes instead of 25 mins)
- Superior accuracy of dose delivery leading y to better cure rates
- Higher target dose and coverage
- Reduced normal tissue dose and minimum side affects
- Visualization of the target during treatement improving the treatement accuracy
This involved removing of cancerous part of the body via surgery
Onco pathologist :
Cancer goes beyond biopsy and detailed pathology which requires a plethora of pathological and prognostic factors , has become the backbone of our treatment plan. At Fortis Cancer Institute has a dedicated and experienced histo pathologist , who prepares this is an integral part of the Fortis Cancer team.
