Surgical Oncology

Before we go further, let’s understand a little more about surgery. Surgery in cancer care, is a treatment method usually performed to remove cancer cells, and other cancer-related symptoms. In many cases, surgery goes hand in hand with other cancer treatments such as Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy or Hormone Therapy. These may be given before or after surgery to help prevent cancer growth, spread or recurrence.

At Onco-Life Care Centre, Chiplun, the Department of Surgical Oncology consists of a team of very talented and dedicated surgical specialists, who formerly worked at the Tata Memorial Hospital. They are your go-to, for the management of all types of cancers. When it comes to Cancer Surgery in Chiplun, you’ll be happy to know that we also perform organ preservation surgeries where cancer cells are removed from the host, without removing the organ. A resolute team of Nutritionists, Rehabilitation Therapists and other clinicians work hand-in-hand with the surgical oncologist to support the patient’s journey of healing, after the surgery is completed.

Yes, you must have heard about how cancer treatment sometimes changes the appearance of a body part. Well, re-constructive surgery helps to repair that damage. Reconstructive surgery is a lot in demand, especially after surgery happens to remove the cancer. You may be aware of how some patients choose to have breast reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy. In cancers that involve the head and neck region, it may be required to replace tissues or nerves during the treatment for these cancers. Rest assured, we have skilful and experienced plastic surgeons to facilitate these procedures.

Of course, the safety standards and protocols that are followed are strictly in accordance with international guidelines. Onco-Life Care Centre, Chiplun, has 2 Major and 1 Minor Operation Theatre with HEPA-Filters for better air filtration and infection control.
