Cancer Institute

Yashoda Cancer Institute has grown to become one of the Center of Excellence in India. With three dedicated, and independent units (Somajiguda, Secunderabad & Malakpet), Yashoda Cancer Institute caters to more than 16,000 new cancer patients every year from all over India and neighbouring countries.

Multidisciplinary Approach: The strength of the Cancer Institute lies in our ability to offer all treatment modalities under one roof. Patients are seen and evaluated in multimodality clinics such as Head and Neck, Breast and Gynecology by a team of specialists in each malignancy. Treatment decisions are then made in multidisciplinary tumour boards where these specialists sit together and discuss the plan of treatment. The emphasis is on combining all modalities of treatment in the right combination to achieve the best results, while minimizing the side effects. The main focus is on organ conservation surgery  to improve quality of life without affecting the chances of cure.

The Institutes have brought in latest technologies and performed advanced procedures.
