Radiotherapy or Radiation therapy is a highly effective form of treatment against many types of cancers leading to cure in many patients and relieving symptoms, hence improving quality of life for others. Radiotherapy is a targeted treatment approach that is aimed at killing cancer cells while causing minimal damage to adjacent tissue/organs when planned, designed and delivered by experts in this domain. We, at Bengal Oncology have a team of Consultant Radiotherapists who are among the best in town who have successfully treated many with their intelligent treatment planning and superb execution of treatment protocols.
At Bengal Oncology, we adopt a multimodal approach towards pain management. We understand cancer patients frequently have organ dysfunction due to cancer and its treatment and hence fall back on combination treatments while minimizing potential side effects and problems from organ damage.
Cancer and its treatment can cause symptoms and side effects. Treating these effects is known as palliative care. The cancer care team at Bengal Oncology understands the importance of palliative care in the life of a cancer patient. Right from our doctors to the supportive care team members are there alongside you on your road to a better quality of life.
A stoma is a surgically created opening on the body that allows for the passage of waste. A stoma may be temporary or permanent depending on the condition of the patient. Types of stomas include colostomy, ileostomy and ileal conduit (or urinary diversion).Our responsibilities extend far beyond stoma surgeries and include specialised care for patients undergoing stoma surgeries, pre and post-operative education, counselling, consultation for management of fistulae/ wounds and assistance for long-term drain tubes/ fistulae.
Speech therapy intervention is critical for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation treatment or surgery. Our speech language pathologists are committed to treating difficulty in swallowing, voice restoration, cognitive rehabilitation for patients who are about to undergo treatment, on treatment and/or have already completed their treatment for cancer. Their compassion blended into their exceptional skill set has made this well-rounded treatment approach so effective here.
We believe in achieving the best through sharing and exchange of knowledge among our team of specialists, other health care providers from different fields. This happens best in tumor boards that take place regularly here at Bengal Oncology. These multidisciplinary tumor boards meet on a regular basis with an objective to ensure decreased variation in practice patterns, effective use of healthcare resources, reach consensus about the treatment approach leading to improved treatment outcomes.
We discuss several options for prosthesis with our patients following surgeries or other forms of curative treatment and help them choose what proves to be the best for them depending on the body part that has been affected by treatment. Our objective is to make our patients feel better and function as naturally as possible.
