Title: Cancer Treatment and Management | MIOT International

Cancer Treatment Management
  • MIOT Hospitals, Chennai

What is Cancer?
  • Cancer has more than 100 forms and is, perhaps,
    the most dreaded diagnosis today. So insidious is
    this disease that the word is used in everyday
    parlance to refer to an evil or destructive
    practice or phenomenon that is hard to contain or
  • Cancer is the out-of-control multiplication of
    abnormal cells that results in malignancy in the
    affected organ. Some are fortunate to receive a
    diagnosis and treatment in the early stages of
    this disease. Some others hardly present with any
    symptoms of the cancer till the late stages.
  • At MIOT International we have a dedicated
    facility to treat cancer - MIOT Institute of
    Cancer Cure is one of our Centers of Excellence
    where all forms of cancer are treated by
    highly-trained and experienced specialists using
    the latest technology and advances in medicine.
    In each and every case, MIOT employs the best
    minds in order to obtain definitive diagnoses and
    offer effective treatment.

Treatment Modalities
  • There are three primary treatment modalities to
    cancer chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy. A
    multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer is
    at the root of our Tumour Board, comprised of
    oncologists, pathologists, radiologists,
    reconstructive surgeons and other specialists.
    The Tumour Board meets thrice a week to discuss
    the detailed diagnostic information about each
    case, which is discussed in depth, and to chart
    out the most effective treatment plan for each
    patient according to his/her particular needs.
  • Also on this Tumour Board are our specialists
    from the MIOT Institute of Haematology,
    Haemato-oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant to
    treat patients with blood and germ-cell cancers.
    These specialists are supported by a dedicated
    team of nurses, nutritionists and counsellors,
    who help patients complete their treatment as

Treatment Modalities
  • Medical Oncology - We treat cancer patients with
    chemotherapy to supplement the benefits of
    surgery and/or radiotherapy. This helps to
    improve the quality of life and prolong survival
    in the case of blood-related cancers such as
    lymphomas, leukaemia and germ-cell tumours. The
    latest drugs in the right combinations are used
    these drugs are prepared under an infection-free
    laminar hood to maintain their effectiveness.
  • Surgical Oncology - Onco-surgery is the treatment
    modality that gives patients the highest
    cure-rates for cancer. Besides surgery to remove
    malignant tumours, onco-surgeons also perform
    diagnostic procedures like biopsies, endoscopies,
    placement of drug-delivery devices, etc.

Treatment Modalities
  • Radiation Oncology deals with radiotherapy to
    treat cancers, either by itself or in addition to
    medical and surgical oncology. This depends on
    the type of cancer and its location in the body.
  • MIOT International is the first hospital in the
    Asia-Pacific region to commission the latest
    armoury in fighting cancer - TrueBeam STx. This
    revolutionary radiotherapy instrument is four
    times faster than regular radiotherapy.
  • We also offer all types of internal
    (brachytherapy) and external beam radiation for
    the treatment of cancers. The three types of
    external beam radiation therapy are Intensity
    Modulated Radiation Treatment (IMRT)
    Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Radiotherapy(SRS/SRT
    ) and Stereotactic Body Radiation Treatment

Definite Diagnosis
  • In truth, treatment for cancer begins in the
    laboratory itself. MIOT Internationals 24-hour
    lab is spread over 6000 sq. ft. and ranked 8th in
    the world. Expert technologists, high level of
    automation and exacting quality control protocols
    enable the study of cancer tissues at a molecular
    level and ensure that diagnosis is accurate. This
    helps the oncologist in planning treatment that
    will afford optimum benefits for the patient.
  • MICC is equipped with the sophisticated dual-head
    gamma camera with its advanced workstation and
    the 64-slice PET CT, which give our specialists
    detailed information about the physiology and
    pathophysiology of various organ systems in as
    little as 15 minutes.

Definite Diagnosis
  • Our state-of-the-art digital mammography is
    non-invasive and comfortable and picks up tumours
    even before they can be felt. This enables early
    diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
  • Sophisticated facilities for detecting
    gastrointestinal and liver cancers include
    endoscopy, minimally-invasive biopsies and more.
  • Our aim at the MIOT Institute for Cancer Cure is
    to detect and beat the cancer as fast and as
    painlessly as possible. In the unfortunate event
    of end-stage cancer, we offer palliative care to
    keep our patients comfortable with the support of
    our expert and empathetic staff.
