Dehradun, 20 Jun : Max Super Speciality Hospital, Dehradun, a leading healthcare provider, has announced the launch of its Radiation OPD (Outpatient Department), a significant expansion of its cancer treatment offerings on Tuesday.
Radiation therapy plays a crucial role in the treatment of cancer, and the introduction of the Radiation OPD reaffirms Max Super Speciality Hospital, Dehradun’s commitment to delivering advanced, multidisciplinary cancer care. By offering a dedicated outpatient facility for radiation treatment, the hospital aims to provide greater convenience, personalized care, and improved outcomes for patients in their fight against cancer. The facility will provide expert advice and treatment for conditions such as cancer of the Breast, Lung, Liver, Head, Neck, Urology and Pancreas.
The OPD was launched by leading Radiation Oncologist, Dr Rashmi Shukla- Consultant, Radiation Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Patparganj. She has been practising radiation therapy for over 10 years and has trained at various leading radiation centres in the nation. She will be doing the OPD at Max Super Speciality Hospital, Dehradun on the 2nd Friday of every month.
Dr Manisa Pattanayak, Principal Consultant- Surgical Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Dehradun, said, “Our hospital is one of the major healthcare centres in Uttarakhand which conducts highly complex cancer surgeries with micro-vascular reconstruction like complex head and neck cancer, breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer and others. It also has a dedicated tumour board for the assistance of those suffering from cancer of various kinds.”
Dr Runu Sharma, Consultant – Medical Oncology, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Dehradun, said, “Max Institute of Cancer Care at Dehradun treats approximately 200 new cancer cases every year. Most of these cancers can be prevented by following an active and healthy lifestyle, and also by immunization against cancer-causing infections. A large number of these cancer-related deaths could be avoided if the disease could be detected at an early stage during which the chances of the recovery is higher than later stages.”
With the launch of these OPD services in Dehradun, Max Hospital will be able to serve more patients in the city and nearby regions. The hospital has already established itself as a tertiary care facility with its state-of-the-art technology and a blend of the finest medical and surgical skills. Their focus has always been on catering to people in other cities so that access to quality healthcare becomes better.
Dr Sandeep Singh Tanwar, Vice President- Operations & Unit Head, Max Super Specialty Hospital, Dehradun said, “At Max Super Specialty Hospital, our endeavour is to equip the common man with relevant information pertaining to cancer-related issues. Patients beyond the big metros find it difficult to avail quality treatment often and hence have to incur huge costs in long-distance travel to metro cities. Moreover, time is critical in treating such cases so that further damage to the organs can be prevented. This OPD is going to be a valuable addition to the healthcare infrastructure of Max Hospital, Dehradun by providing world-class treatment solutions to patients in the city right at their doorsteps.”
