Dr. Sumeet Shah, heads the Silverline OncoCare (Every dark cloud has a silver lining; a compassionate doctor can definitely hold the patient's hand and show that silver lining, at a time of crisis for the patient and care givers).


Dr. Sumeet Shah is a Surgical Oncologist - in simple words - a Surgeon, trained in cancer surgery (All cancer surgeries are supra major surgeries and need a lot of skill, training and experience, to perform a good surgery). He has done his training in Surgical Oncology from the Tata memorial Hospital, Asia's largest cancer centre and practices in the Mumbai suburs from Borivli to Bandra. Following is a time line of his qualifications:

M.B.B.S (1996 to 2002): Seth G.S.Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, Parel (KEM Hospital).

M.S. (General Surgery) (2003 to 2006): Grant Medical College and Sir J.J.Group of Hospitals, Byculla (JJ Hospital)

At the Tata Memorial Hospital, he has worked extensively in the all units, over a period of five years and has gained a good experience into managing all solid organ tumours. He left Tata Memorial Hospital in June, 2011 and since then he is into his private practice, in the suburbs from Borivli to Bandra. He has his clinic at Borivali - SilverLine OncoCare - where he consults his patients and depending on need, gives the patients options to get operated at various hospitals where he is attached. Apart from his clinic, he also consults at the attached hospitals, on prior appointment.


Dr. Sumeet Shah has been trained at Tata Memorial Hospital in the management of all solid organ cancers. Surgical Oncology is too vast a field, and over time, he has narrowed down into managing certain cancers; Focusing on limited cancers has helped him in achieving excellence in those cancers, as compared to trying to doing everything:

Breast Cancer: We offer comprehensive managenemt of breast cancer, right confirming the diagnosis by biopsy, to quality surgery and post operative care, and organizing with Medical and Radiation Oncologists, for further management. Because of the numbers of breast cacner cases we do, patients invariably also consult us for non cancerous breast lumps like fibroids and cysts and we manage them too.

Gynecological Cancers: These include cancers of the uterus, cervix and ovary. Gynec cancers account for the second most common, after breast cancer.

Gastro Intestinal Cancers: We operate upon, for cancer of the stomach, the small intestine and the colon and rectum (colon and rectum are parts of large intestine) Colon is the large intestine, and rectum is the last part of the large intestine.

Others: We also treat certain other tumours, like those of kidney, of thyroid gland and the parotid gland (salivary gland).

ChemoPORT Insertion: A ChemoPORT makes life much easier for patients undergoing chemotherapy. The insertion of the same is by a surgery.

Cancers we don't treat anymore: All cancers in the thorax (the chest), like esophahus, lung; oral cancer and cancer of the larynx (voice box); cancer of pancreas and liver. The main reason being, these surgeries require dedicated teams, along with good intensive care backup and local doctor backup. Even if one of them is lacking, the outcome will suffer. Since we faced logistical issues in this, we have stopped operating them, but we very well guide patients on them. The reason for stopping is, we believe in a hundred percent policy. Either give a hundred percent effort or just don't give. There is nothing in between.
