Medical Oncology

Apollo Speciality Hospital, Madurai, possesses some renowned oncologists specialising in treating tumours through chemotherapy. These specialists conduct various investigations to understand how the patient responds to a particular treatment and how the therapy is beneficial in treating cancer. Therefore, personalised chemotherapy is administered for a better outcome.

Personalised chemotherapy

Gone are the days when oncologists prescribed chemotherapy and general drug treatment as the first course of action for any cancer patient. Today, doctors have shifted to high-end therapeutic methods with personalised drugs. This treatment option is only finalised based on various investigations, diagnostic tests, and profiling. These tests also indicate whether a particular drug benefits the cancer patient and how the specific patient’s body may respond when the drug is administered. Such treatment options are patient-centric and add value in combating cancer and helping the patient conquer the disease more efficiently and effectively.

Molecular profiling

Oncologists at Apollo Speciality Hospital, Madurai, are using newer techniques of innovation for customised treatment, such as molecular and genetic profiling using high-end therapeutic methods. This molecular profiling technique uses the cancer tissue sample collected for biopsy or the patient’s blood sample to predict the patient’s chances of responding to the cancer drugs and customise treatment plans accordingly.

Genetic profiling

New technologies help oncologists customise treatment plans for cancer patients. One such technology is genetic profiling. The doctors of Apollo Speciality Hospital, Madurai, conduct genetic profiling. This technique examines and checks the gene mutation of the cancerous cells to effectively predict if the patient responds to a particular cancer drug or not and help plan treatment options.

This protocol helps treat various cancers such as:

  • Lung cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Leukaemia cancer
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Chemotherapy Ward

Chemotherapy is no walk in the park, which is why we have dedicated short-stay chemotherapy wards with strict protocols for infection control. The wards have specially trained nursing staff who create a warm and cheery ambience.

Surgical Oncology

Removing a complex tumour needs precision and skill –quality in our highly-trained and motivated surgical oncologists. The state-of-the-art operating theatres and highly-skilled recovery and ICU staff are the backbones that support our team of doctors.
Apollo’s success rates in oncology surgeries are equivalent to those of the best centres in the world. Specialised surgeries include skull base, commando, liver resection, microvascular reconstructions of flaps, extensive resection of hepatic and lung tumours, limb conserving surgery in bone tumours, laparoscopic surgery in staging and diagnosis, and the likes are performed with high success rates.

Robotic cancer surgery
Apollo Institutes of Robotic Surgery, established to provide patients with an exceptional experience using advanced treatment options.
Apollo Speciality Hospital, Madurai, has a state-of-the-art operating theatre equipped with the da Vinci Si surgical system. It is the most advanced platform for minimally invasive surgery available today. Various specialities use this four-armed surgical robotic system:

  • Urology
  • Gynaecology
  • Cardiac
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Bariatrics
  • Paediatrics
  • Fluorescence Guided Surgery

Apollo Speciality Hospital, Madurai, always seeks to include innovative cancer care techniques. One such new technique is Fluorescence Guided Surgery. This procedure helps doctors perform lifesaving surgeries that could completely remove tumours deeply embedded in the brain areas that are not easily accessible. This technique’s most significant advantage is that it clearly distinguishes the tumour from the healthy cells. This highly innovative breakthrough technique sets the stage for doctors to perform the procedure with absolute precision on young patients with centrally-located large tumours.

Radiation Oncology

Our radiation oncologists work closely with medical oncologists, surgeons, and other doctors to examine, diagnose, and plan customised treatment plans that are most appropriate for the cancer patient.
Radiation therapy targets and regulates doses of high-frequency radiation to destroy cancer cells. This technique sometimes causes cancer cells to die immediately after the treatment. However, most cancer cells
