- About the Department

Medical oncology as a medical field and super speciality is relatively young, but Jaslok Hospital took a bold step in the right direction to be one of the first non -governmental hospitals to set up a separate and dedicated department for medical oncology. It all started 35 years ago. The department was set up by two present day stalwarts of oncology in India - Dr. Suresh Advani and Dr. Boman N. Dhabhar. With medical expertise, dedication & state-of-the-art technology, all under one roof, and today the hospital is recognized as one of the best cancer centres in India.

The idea of a ‘DAY CARE’ that is a separate ward to administer short chemotherapies was non-existent in the Indian setting, this was conceptualised at Jaslok Hospital. The day care unit was started with a handful of beds where patients would take their chemotherapy dose and return.

Our centre provides diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, neuroendocrine tumours, colon, breast, gynaecological, prostate and lung cancer, blending with quality care and much-needed sensitivity to around 300 outpatients in the OPD and approximately 350 inpatient admissions every week. We were the first centre to start Bone Marrow Transplants (BMT) in the private sector in India. The department has successfully performed more than 450 Allogenic and Autologous bone marrow transplants till date.

Our strength is a blend of the best doctors, the finest technology and supportive staff that helps us in diagnosis, treatment, cure and support to the families of all our patients. Our oncology specialists not just deliver state-of-the-art cancer care to patients but also endeavour towards advancing the field through clinical and bench investigation.
