Comprehensive & Supportive Cancer Care for YOU
Put your faith in the Department of Oncology of Bangalore Baptist Hospital for compassionate cancer treatment. Our highly-qualified team of doctors and staff provide empathetic and quality cancer care using advanced diagnostic and treatment methods. The department was formed with the primary aim of providing compassionate, cost-effective and ethical care.
We fully understand what you are going through and ensure that you and your family get all the support needed during cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow-up over long periods. Our multidisciplinary clinical team comprising of surgical, medical, radiation, and organ-specific oncologists, pathologists, and radiologists collaborate to define the best possible treatment that takes into consideration your physical, social, psychological, emotional, and financial situations.
When you come to us for cancer treatment, you can be assured that our doctors will leave no stone unturned in providing honest consultation and an accurate treatment plan that adheres to all international health standards. We communicate to our patients the best course of treatment, and what to expect during and after the treatment. Only after we are convinced that you have understood and given your full consent, do we proceed with the treatment. We do not prescribe tests or treatments unless it is necessary. You can trust us for affordable and quality treatment.

- Palliative radiation therapy

Chemotherapy involves use of cytotoxic drugs in the form of injections or tablets to kill the malignant cancer cells. We offer intravenous (veins), intrathecal (spine) and intraabdominal (abdomen) chemotherapy to treat a wide range of tumors. We treat paediatric as well as adult patient. Haematological malignancies like Lymphoma and Leukaemia are treated by the Hemato-oncologist.
Bone Marrow Transplant
Bone marrow transplant is a much-needed procedure for the treatment of cancer as well as non-cancer diseases and can be very expensive. Bangalore Baptist Hospital will soon have a state-of-the-art bone marrow transplant unit, complete with specialized doctors, nurses and infrastructure.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that hospitals treating life limiting diseases must have a Palliative Care team. The motto of the Palliative Care team at Bangalore Baptist Hospital is to add life to days. Right from the time of cancer diagnosis to symptom management, the Palliative Care team provides wholistic care for patients and their families.
The team is divided into two groups – the urban group and the rural group who spend five days a week travelling across Bangalore to visit terminally ill patients in their homes. Other than physical aid, the team provides emotional, psycho-social, and spiritual support to patients. Furthermore, we empower the family to take care of their loved one and counsel them in trying times. Each team comprises of a doctor, nurses and a chaplain for counselling. Currently we have 80 to 100 patients under our care.
