Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC) conducted its 2nd Apollo Annual Proton Practicum from May 20-22, 2022. Over 700 participants including Radiation Oncologists and Medical Physicists from across the globe participated in the 3-day intensive clinical and academic event. World-renowned Radiation Oncologists and Medical Physicists from six continents deliberated and engaged with all the participants. During the event, Professor Eugen Hug, an internationally acclaimed Radiation Oncologist and Medical Director of Med Austron Ion therapy centre, Vienna, Austria, inaugurated “Dr. Prathap C Reddy Proton Oration” session.

Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Founder and Chairman, Apollo Hospitals said, “More than 25 years ago, we noted the growing prevalence of cancer in India, the lack of Oncology centres in the country and this was the genesis of Apollo embarking on advanced cancer care. From the very beginning, we brought in the most advanced technologies in cancer care and even South Asia and the Middle East’s first Proton Therapy at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre, reiterating our commitment to investing in the best available care for our patients. I am pleased that all leading experts in Proton therapy from across the globe have come together at Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC) and are collaborating to best utilize this novel technology. It is a matter of pride that the top specialists are working with us to ensure we all can deliver the best of care to our patients. This will further strengthen our resolve to keep raising the bar in Oncology!”

Dr. Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals said, “It was just about 3 years ago, that the very first Proton Therapy in South Asia and The Middle East was unveiled at the Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC) in Chennai. It marked a definitive step ahead by making the world’s most advanced radiation therapy much more accessible, benefitting a population of over 3.5 billion people. Now, once again raising the bar, APCC has become the first dedicated cancer hospital in India to be accredited by JCI, the gold standard for Quality. I am so thankful to all the leading global experts who have graciously accepted our invitation to join us and share their invaluable expertise with us. APCC has been providing cancer care with outcomes on par with leading international centres. We must keep collaborating and working together with a single resolve to give our patients the best in cancer care with love and empathy.”
