We use multidisciplinary team approach to the management of Liver cancer, including cutting edge therapy in surgery, ablation, chemo-embolization and systemic therapies.

Our HPB unit has also pioneered laparoscopic methods for both the diagnosis and treatment of hepatobiliary cancers. With this technique patient can go home much quicker with minimum trauma and discomfort.

Types of treatment for Liver cancer-

  • Liver resection- This is the best treatment for both primary and secondary liver cancers where part of liver is surgically removed.
  • Thermal ablative therapy- For patients where resection is not possible or they are not fit, treatment called thermal ablation and it uses heat to kill tumour cells to prevent them from spreading.
  • Chemoembolisation- Type of treatment where main supplying blood vessels to tumour is blocked, so blood supply to tumour reduces and tumour growth slows down.

we have urgent access to services like CT, bronchoscope and EBUS-FNA services help us to diagnose disease at earliest with better possibility of cure.

Neuroendocrine tumours including lung, gastroenteropancreatic system and others. We aim to offer personalised treatment based on tumour and patient specific characteristics. We are offering-
