Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is the use of various drugs to destroy rapidly-growing cancer cells or stop their growth before they spread to other parts of the body. However, they also act on normal body cells, thus leading to side effects. There are two types of chemotherapy—adjuvant chemotherapy and neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

Some kinds of chemotherapy may slow the growth of cancer cells and keep them from spreading to other parts of the body. It may be used with radiation to help shrink the tumour before a surgery. It may also be used after surgery or radiation to destroy remnant cancer cells.

In Reliance Hospital Cancer Care – Gondia, chemotherapy is given efficiently at our specialised treatment areas and managed by a team of oncology-trained nurses who provide close monitoring. Our chemotherapy ward and trained nursing staff cater to each patient’s individual needs. They prepare the doses prescribed by doctors at special stations which ensure strict infection control. The chemotherapy ward being situated on the ground floor allows quick entry and exit for the patients, thus minimising the time taken for treatment.

The Reliance Hospital Cancer Care – Gondia facility has been set-up with the aim to provide state-of-the-art, safe and effective treatment in an accessible and clean environment. We plan to target various aspects of the patient’s illness with a systematic approach involving a team consisting of a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and support services. We believe in providing compassionate care with cutting-edge technology to young and old patients in need of advanced treatment.
