Let's beat the big 'C'..
"CANCER" - A word which shakes the ground, which brings a fear no words can express. For a patient and the care givers, the journey of cancer treatment is usually several months long, and is dependent on a lot of factors. Undergoing the standard treatment is just one part of it. It is very well known that cancer treatments come with its own range of problems. And it is during this time, that cancer patients and their care givers are vulnerable and need a little helping hand, a little push, to help them out of it. It is during this period, that if a medical team is around, is approachable, is caring, it gives an immense sense of security, safety and a moral boost to the patient and care givers.
This is where we pride ourselves. We are a Surgical Oncology Team and performing a state of the art surgery is a passion. In no other condition does the quality of surgery determine the outcome as much as it does in cancer. A clean, meticulous surgery helps in reducing the post surgical issues and gives the best bet for a longer survival. But doing a world class surgery is only one part of our services. We really attempt to go a step forward, keep ourselves approachable, and make sure that our patients are going through the surgical and post surgical journey comfortably, smoothly and with a smile. We work in joint consultation with our Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology colleagues and guide our patients till their treatments are complete, and the ultimate follow up is with us.
Every dark cloud has a silver lining. It is our endeavour to help our patients see the silver lining even in their difficult days, and ensure their journey of cancer treatment is as comfortable as it can be. You are not alone, remember. We are together, hand in hand. And we shall beat the big 'C'
