Manipal Comprehensive Cancer Care Centre is a comprehensive cancer care service situated at the Shirdi Sai Baba Cancer Hospital and Research Centre of the Kasturba Hospital, Manipal.
The comprehensive cancer care has three parts
The treatment of the cancer will be person centered where patients and their families will be equal partners in planning, developing and executing their cancer treatment to make sure it meets their individual needs. It means putting patients and their families at the centre of decision making. It is about considering people’s desires, values, family situations and social circumstances and working together to develop appropriate solutions for cancer management. Person centered care also involves managing patient’s pain and symptoms and improving their quality of life during and after treatment. Moreover, patients and their families will be supported psychologically and socially throughout the course of their cancer treatment.
All patients with cancer consulting at the Kasturba Hospital Manipal will be discussed in the tumor board. We will ensure that all patients will receive a consistent and precise treatment according to best available evidence created by the national/international cancer bodies. This will ensure quality cancer care for all patients see at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal
Personalized cancer approach involves tailoring the cancer treatment to the individual patient by knowing how a person’s genes affect the way the body processes and responds to drugs and by targeting a cancer’s specific genes and proteins that allow the cancer cells to grow and survive. Manipal has medical genetics and pharmacogenetics labs and also has a lab for basic genetics research in life science building. The rich expertise and infrastructure in personalised medicine at Manipal will provide cutting edge targeted and personalised cancer treatment at an affordable cost.
