ONCOLOGY ONCO SURGERY

Expert care that arouses hope

Cancer. The very name arouses a sense of fear and trepidation. The many myths surrounding the serious disease, serve to fuel the nervousness. An atmosphere of despair and hopelessness pervades, which does little to mitigate the suffering and mental anguish of the patient.

At Bhrungi, we are determined to change this scenario. By bringing together a winning combination comprising a team of experienced specialists, a group of multidisciplinary clinical experts and world-class infrastructural support, we have not only armed ourselves to battle against cancer but also to awaken and arouse hope among our patients.

At Bhrungi, we have a team of some of the best Oncologists in Hyderabad who have extensive experience in diagnosing, preventing, managing and treating various forms of cancer that affect the organs, muscles, bones and connective tissue. Our Oncologists collaborate with specialists in all other departments to provide seamlessly integrated, multidisciplinary cancer care to our patients.

The best diagnostic facilities for cancer

Early detection of cancer ensures that it is more likely to respond to treatment and can lead to greater probability of survival as well as less expensive treatment. Some of the more common cancers like breast cancer, cervical cancer, oral cancer, and colorectal cancer, have high cure rates when detected early and treated promptly in the right manner.

Moreover, a correct diagnosis is essential for appropriate and effective treatment because every cancer type requires a specific treatment pathway.

Bhrungi, with the aim of emerging as the best cancer hospital in Hyderabad, has set-up impressive infrastructure that includes state-of-the-art imaging equipment for diagnosing cancer, such as X-ray, CT scan, MRI scan, and PET-CT scan as well as facilities for biopsy to confirm diagnosis.

Medical Oncology

Medical Oncology

This field of cancer care focuses on surgical procedures to diagnose cancer by biopsy, remove a tumour, determine the location and stage of cancer or as a preventive measure to remove body tissue that may become cancerous.

The best cancer treatments

Myeloma

A condition when cancerous plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow and produce abnormal proteins which can lead to complications.

Myeloproliferative Disorders

These disorders cause bone marrow to make too many deformed red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets which accumulate in the blood. These disorders can also lead to acute leukemia.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

The most common form of blood cancer, it develops in myeloid cells causing them to mature and multiply into abnormal white blood cells that can overwhelm healthy cells in the bone marrow and blood and sometimes spread to other parts of the body.

Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes: (Aplastic Anaemia, Fanconi Anaemia)

These are rare diseases characterized by the bone marrow’s inability to produce enough red cells, which carry oxygen; white cells, which fight infection; or platelets, which help the blood clot.

Myelodysplastic Syndromes

These conditions occur when the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow become abnormal, leading to a shortage of red blood cells (anaemia).

Lymphoma (Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's)

Lymphoma is a cancer that affects the lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that plays a crucial role in the immune system. It may arise in lymph nodes anywhere in the body.

Acute Lymphoid Leukemia

A type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow, the disease progresses rapidly and creates immature blood cells that are unable to function properly. It is the most common type of cancer in children.

Musculoskeletal Cancer

Bone cancer can begin in any bone in the body, but it commonly affects the pelvis or the long bones in the arms and legs. It is basically of two types:
Primary Bone Tumours: These are those which form from bone tissue itself and can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (not cancerous). Most common in children and young adults when the skeleton is still developing.
Secondary Bone Tumours: This is cancer that has spread from other parts of the body to the bones, particularly from breast and prostate cancer.

Advanced procedures for cancer care

Head and Neck Surgery

Our team of experienced onco-surgeons treats head and neck cancers using highly advanced, minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove as many cancerous cells as possible. It is performed to treat tumours of the skin, salivary glands, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, thyroid and parathyroid glands.

Head and Neck Surgery

It involves taking healthy stem cells found in the bone marrow and transfusing them into the patient. The stem cells can be collected from the patient (autologous) or a donor (allogenic). Bone marrow transplant is used to treat leukemias, lymphomas, aplastic anemia, and some solid tumor cancers.

Head and Neck Surgery

Our team has the expertise to perform minimally invasive surgeries on parts of the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord, peripheral nerves (in the hands and feet), and the extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. It is a treatment option for brain tumours, spinal tumours, tumours near the spinal column or peripheral nerves and neurologic problems as a result of other cancers or treatments.
